Who is Mr. Appleman?

unnamed

Rhapsodizing on to high school students about the environment, giving misbehaving students comical sentences to copy, and dedicating his life to teaching others about biology: welcome to the life of the most interesting man alive, Mr. Appleman.

Mr. Appleman has been a teacher here at San Mateo High School for a long time. He graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in botany. People love Mr. Appleman because of his sarcasm and dry sense of humor.

When asked about any special talents, Mr. Appleman sat back in his computer chair, thought about it for a while, and finally replied with, “I am the most boring man in the world.”  He is very passionate about teaching and always willing to help. He has also led the faculty as a union representative, and is always willing to pitch in to improve the school.

If students are struggling with biology, which can be really confusing, Mr. Appleman will take time to help you understand.

“Mr. Appleman is hilarious,” says freshman, Peter O’Shea.

Mr. Appleman’s plans for the future are pretty blunt. He wants to “teach here next year, and the next, and the next year, and the year after that.”

“I look up to Mother Nature,” he added.
