As a person he's a really nice and forgiving guy! However, as a US history teacher he wasn't the best. :( Kinda boring and I didn't feel very prepared for tests.

So hard to stay awake in his class. Fall asleep all the time. Its an easy class but you have to read in order to pass. Very boring teacher.

I love pape as a teacher but when it comes to outlining a section every single night and a quiz on it the next day fallowing, the work really gets stressful. But hes really cool and has great stories.

Really prepares you for the AP, do your homework, even if it's a lot. First teacher to ever get me to do the reading and it paid off with a 5

After the AP exam, you'll see how much you've learned. Do the homework, and you should be set. Soothing lecture voice will make you sleepy, doodle to stay awake. Occasional eye contact = participation

He is a wonderful man with a love for what he does. You do have to work on staying awake though.

Really nice guy. Decent amount of homework, but it helps you on tests/quizzes (all open notes). Don't cheat! (big on honor and integrity). Make eye contact in class for participation, no sleeping!

Really nice. He helps you out even if hes not your teacher. He knows his subject and explains topics calmly without getting frustrated with you. He puts forth the effort necessary in a good teacher. Request that he be your teacher!

Pape was the worst teacher I had at Albany High, even worse than Gottheim or even Zucconi and Kippen put together.

This guy is one of the worst history teachers I have every had. He needs to go back to being in the business field, and leave teaching to someone who knows how
