• It's me! About Mr. Scharpf


    Dear Parents and students,

    I am honored to teach students at Aprende Middle School. I welcome all my science and math students. To give you a little background: I was born in Kittery Maine. My father was in the Air Force, so by the time I was in Third Grade, I lived in Maine, New Hampshire, Alaska, Maryland, and Wisconsin. Our family settled in Arizona and I’ve been here since.

    I have a bachelor’s degree in environmental science and a master’s in Special Education, both from NAU. Although I had some great teachers it wasn’t until college that I really appreciate education. It is my goal to instill in my students not only a love of science, but the educational process in general.

    At home, I enjoy video games, board games and role-playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons, I have pursued creative endeavors such as woodworking and jewelry making, and enjoy outdoor activities such as camping and hiking.
