Lamping is an accomplished teacher who brings his unique personality and genuine spirit to his classroom. He currently teaches AP Human Geography and Honors U.S History at Mehlville High School as well as being the sponsor for its Culture Club.

He often talks with his students about life struggles while encouraging them to consider things from multiple viewpoints. Furthermore, Lamping is also an avid caver and serves as president of Missouri Speleological Survey which connects cavers together.
Joseph Lamping served for 22 years with the Whittier Police Department in California as both patrolman and detective before being promoted to sergeant six years ago.
