Gabe Schepergerdes, Teacher


“Mr. Schep” grew up in Eugene and has been serving the students of Bend La Pine schools as a math teacher since 2014. To distract himself from the recent, regrettable exit of Die Mannshaft from the World Cup, he is busying himself with creating plans for an exciting year of math, problem solving and outdoor adventures with students at Skyline.
