Mr. Pappas is the most knowledgeable person i have ever met. He is what every teacher should be like because he knows everything there is to know about Math. Best teacher hands down.

His sense of humor is not funny-he has a huge ego and plays favorites.

Great teacher! He can be "mean," but he only really makes fun of students that he really likes. He's incredibly funny and entertaining. He's also very helpful.

Some people take his jokes a little too seriously (when they shouldn't). Teacher-wise, he is awesome. He explains well and pushed you not to use a calculator and use your brain instead. Hilarious!

If you can learn not to take offense when he says something (I get my share of ribbing), he's actually very funny and does a good job of explaining things.
