The Extraordinary Journey of Mr. Wallace

by Darien Howard and Spencer Parker

The reason behind out interview is that we wanted to know how Mr. Wallace became a principal and the things he has planned for next year.

The Origins

As a teenager, Mr. Wallace attended Germantown High School. One day Mr. Wallace went with his mentor Mr. Charles Whiting to Dobbins High School where Mr. Whiting was a principal. As they walked through the school everyone was saying hello to Mr. Whiting and Mr. Wallace liked that everybody respected Mr. Whiting. From that day on, he knew he wanted to become a school principal. But Mr. Whiting told him he had to be a teacher first.

Professional Experience

After he was a teacher for some time, he became a principal. During the summer, Mr. Wallace will stay at school and work. We asked Mr. Wallace what he planned for next year and he said that next year we will try to be more quiet in the hallways and have better transitions to other classes. Next year, he will try to have more trips to different museums, the zoo, and the Franklin Institute.

Thanks, Mr. Wallace, for taking the time to speak with us. We learned a lot about you.
