the best teacher ever. Will do anything for his students. He's not just a great teacher he's a great person in general. Nest teacher iv ever had and best teacher in lakeland
Without a doubt the greatest teacher and asset Lakeland Schools has ever had. I remember my friends parents had him as a teacher and their experiences mirrored my own. Caring, clear, approachable, and dare him to know a college mascot as obscure that you can find. In the 13 years I spent at Lakeland there is not 1 other teacher I would even put on his level forget about above him. Had him 8th grade and watched high school students come back to him for help. I hope he's still teaching young minds
Mr. Rap ale is by far the best teacher ever to walk the halls of lakeland. I had him in 1987 and I'm 2010 came across his email. I sent him a note and he actually remembered me. I will never or get this man!!!
Mike Rapalje is a legend. Teachers like him are RARE. I had him back in the 60's and when I saw him 20 yrs. later he remembered my name!!! Awesome.
never had him but hes md chill, u will never catch him without a smile, even if ur not his student u feel like uv known him for yrs.
he is pure awesomeness. The class moved too slow for me but whatever.
I miss him. He's a better teacher than any college professor I've had. He taught with love. He showed compassion and devotion to his duties. He taught us, and he taught us well. He is my teacher.
HE'S THE MOST DEDIATED TEACHER I'VE EVER SEEN. AND HE MAKES THINGS TO EASY! I LOVE HIM!!!
No doubt the best math teacher ever. He's there from 5 to 7 every day and at all the games and stuff besides. He's awsome
i wish he was my grandpa. such a cool guy, loves his students, great teacher.
he is the best teacher ever!! i never met someone who cared more about his students and he is a really good teacher.
THE BEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD!!! HE IS THE NICEST MAN YOU WILL EVER MEET IN YOUR LIFE!!! i feel bad for all of you who never had him
A true renaissance man--he goes to sports games, helps on hw, and is a friend to all. Wish I could bring him with me to college!
A collegue of Mr. R for years & would have to validate the ratings of his students through the years. Like a "duracel battery" he just keeps ticking.
He was the best teacher when I had him 13 years ago, and obviously he still is! Amazing man!
the best in the business. can't find anyone that doesn't like him, genuinely nice and helpful man that really loves his job.
Mr. Rapalje is the man. No one can compare to him. We are his kids.He would do anything for anyone of his students. Still to this day, I visit him everymorning!
Rapalje is great. He should start the teachers hall of fame, best teacher ever.
mr rapalje is really the best teacher ever - i've heard him raise his voice only once, and then he apologized so much for it; ahh he's just an awesome guy.
Mr. Rapalje was my math reacher in 9th grade and I still go back to him even now for help when I don't understand whatever we're working on in class.
i didnt have him yet but he is soooooo cool!!! no wonder the yearbook is partly dedicated 2 him!
MR.RAPALJE BELONGS IN THE WORLD'S TEACHER HALL OF FAME. THERE IS NONE BETTER ANYWHERE!!!!
MR RAPALJE IS THE BEST MATH TEACHER!! I LOVE YOU MR. RAPALJE
Mr. Rapalje is the best math teacher I've ever had and the only one who has ever made math easy and not boring. Mr. Rogers incarnate!
One of the best. Hands down. He can make math understandable for anyone and everyone. Always willing to help and listen, even if your not his student!
Never had him as a teacher, but he helped me out after school when my math teacher sucked. Best. Teacher. Ever. Loves his students more than life.
A great teacher. He's alway's willing to help out any student in math, regardless of who their official teacher is
I lvoe mr Rapalje one of the finest teacher in Lakeland EVER
Rap Master J is the best man ever! You will love any math class he takes!!!
