One of my favourite teachers I've ever had. He made history SO interesting and was such a smart, intellectual person. He treated students like real people, not just dumb teenagers. I have SO much respect for him.

Peist is probably the best teacher I've ever had. He could easily have been a university prof and the students at Leaside were lucky to have him for so long. I have nothing but respect for him, and I hope he has a fantastic retirement!

One of my top 3 teachers of all time. He is one of the most intellectually sound people I've met, and his grasp of what he teaches takes his courses out of the textbook and into a lecture setting. I'm terribly hurt to hear that he's retiring this year, he was of the most valued teachers in Leaside.

Seriously the best teacher I have ever had. He's amazing. His classes are interesting and witty. You actually learn something and he definitely knows what he's talking about. He is frightening when he yells, but he has a lot of patience and he's a fair marker.
