If you’re a student in mathematics, then you might be attending classes of one of Southern Lehigh High School’s newest teachers, Mr. Jonathan Piperato. He’s currently teaching Algebra 2, Applied Geometry, and Applied Computer Science Principles.

“He’s young and does a good job of connecting with students individually,” junior Marc Ramson said. “He keeps it fun but makes sure we know what we’re doing.”

Mr. Piperato grew up in the Lehigh Valley. He attended Nazareth High School and graduated from Bloomsburg University earlier this year.

“When I was in high school, I’ve always knew that I wanted to be a teacher because I couldn’t stand my teachers,” Mr. Piperato said. “I remember how most people hated mathematics, but I loved it because I thought it was so cool. So, I just want to help other people learn from it, instead of staying away from it.”

Mr. Piperato’s interests are playing the guitar, watching sports, hunting, fishing, and archery. He considers getting a job at Southern Lehigh a big accomplishment, just as much as earning his degree. At college, he was a dedicated student, graduating magna cum laude, which is considered between a 3.75 and a 3.94 GPA at Bloomsburg.

“I definitely do want to go back and get my masters. I’m not sure what yet,” Mr. Piperato said. “As a teacher, you need to be constantly open to learning new things from students.”

So far, Mr. Piperato seems to be getting along well with the students and has learned to fit in with the Southern Lehigh community.
