Have you ever wondered what your school teachers, administration, and staff do behind the scenes? The short answer: a lot!
There’s about 1,000,004 things (give or take 100) that take place daily to make sure each individual student has the best possible experiences and academic opportunities at your institution. From planning the yearly budget to serving every grade lunch to mapping bus routes to coordinating athletics to enhancing learning tools to cultivating school spirit, we interviewed Principal Wayne Warner on all of the above and much more to provide a humbling overview of the impressive work that goes into each school year.
Principal Warner is the longest-standing high school principal in the United States, and the class of 2023 marks his 50th year of serving at Chalmette High School! This episode with the beloved and honorable principal will make you want to write your own school faculty and staff to thank them for all of the hard and selfless work they do every day to give you the education of a lifetime.
Furthermore, maybe you’ve considered life as teacher or in school administration? Principal Warner provides credit to his team and exposure to the requirements and important considerations for coming together successfully with other faculty and staff while also instilling meaningful lessons and good principles (sorry, we had to) for students to take with them throughout their academic and professional careers.
