Ms. Pappas’s philosophy

Known for her humor, knowledge, and ability to keep the classroom engaging and interactive, Ms Pappas is one of the most loved and funniest teachers here at SMHS.

Ms. Pappas started teaching at San Mateo in 2002, as the teacher of AP Government/Economics and AP US History. She added that she started teaching because she loves it. “I get to be bossy. I know everything anyway,” she said jokingly.

Ms. Pappas also has a unique philosophical views on education. “Students should like learning for the sake of learning,” said Ms. Pappas. She believes that far too often, students are disinterested and are only concerned with their grades, when teenagers should come to the classroom everyday with a passion for knowledge.

What advice does Ms. Pappas have for us SMHS teens? “Students should not think like teenagers,” she stated. That’s some great advice! Hopefully, Ms. Pappas will continue teaching social science and offer her advice to SMHS students for years to come.
