Get to know Mr. Papes

My name is Robert M Papes and am currently a second grade Teacher.  This will be my 12th year in education and I'm looking forward to my 2nd graders again, as well as being actively involved in my school community. My expertise is managing behaviors in the classroom by getting to know each personality. I have taught 6 years of high school as a resource teacher from grades 9th through 12th grade. I have also taught 5 years in Elementary School.

     I am from a little town from Scottville Michigan. I have called Georgia home for about 11 years.  I have a beautiful family that has supported me through my passion of teaching and serving others.  

Get to know Dr. Rivas 

     My name is Edgar Rivas and am currently a math teacher for 5th grade.  This is my 7th year in education and am looking forward to teaching fifth grade again as well as continuing a path towards school administration. My expertise is utilizing instructional technology and really supplementing student's learning with a medium that they are naturally accustomed to understand.  I have taught the four major content areas and have taught some segment of all K-5 students.  I am passionate about elementary students as the primary grades are essential to learning.  

     I am originally from Guatemala City, Guatemala but have called Georgia home for over 30 years.  My growing family includes my wife, Evelyn and our two daughters Sofia (5) as well as Roslyn (2).  I look forward to helping your student bridge any gap or build on their knowledge.  At LCF we are all committed to the goal of building life-long learners!
