Mark Tapper, Lifeskills Room 201


My name is Mark Tapper, and I teach Mathematics and Social Studies in the Life Skills program at Roosevelt High School.  I have been teaching at Roosevelt since 2013, and have worked as in the Minneapolis School District for 14 years.  I graduated from Metropolitan State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer and Information Science in 2002.  I returned to school in 2007, completing my Teacher Licensure courses and Master of Education degree from Augsburg College. 

When I’m not teaching, I enjoy seeing bands, playing music, fishing, hanging with my dogs, Bud and Luna, and spending time with my family.
