Very condescending to some students on front of the class. Picks on kids. Only had one class with him and I looked into taking an independent study with another teacher because of him.

I've had over 35 different classes here at Limestone and I can honestly say that Mr. Veirs has taught me more than anyone else in this building. He cares about all his students and goes the extra mile

Veirs makes an effort to teach you things you never knew you wanted to know. He's always willing to put in extra time to help you out if you ask.

Veirs pushes you to do your best and calls you out if you're lazy. That's why I liked him. He's always challenging you to do more then you think you can.

You can learn a lot from him if youre open to it. He will pick up on the fact if you dont like his class or him and he will say things to you in front of everybody, so be prepared. Do your reading!!

I only had him for one class, and that was one too many. All he did was reinforce my dislike for public speaking.
