One of Us: Mr. Ian Tapp


Mr. Tapp is a physics teacher here at Hammonton High School for Grade 9.

Why did you become a teacher?…“I’m not awful at it, and I enjoy doing it.”

How do you feel about your students?…“They do the best that they can, the class is difficult, and they have to put up with me, that makes it harder.”

What would you do if you weren’t a teacher?…“I’d probably still be working at a restaurant, I love to cook.”

What are some of your favorite music groups?…

-The Black Keys

-Jimi Hendrix

-Alice in Chains


What is your pet peeve?…“I despise being talked down to.”

Is Mr. Majofsky your arch-nemesis?…“If I had one at the school, then yes it’d be him, we’ve had our battles through mutual students.”

What are some of your favorite movies?…

-Super Troopers

-The Dark Knight

What do you commonly do outside of school?…“I run, a lot, and I watch terrible sci-fi movies on Netflix, if it’s not two stars or below, I’m not watching it.”

What’s something not many of your students know about you?…“Students find it odd that I don’t own a single pair of jeans, I’ve probably only wore them about five times on my whole life.”
