Mr. Mankin, our new principal, sat down for an interview with me and answered some questions.
Daphne: Have you worked in the HSE school district before?
Mr. M: I have not. This will be my first year in this district.
Daphne: Have you worked in any other districts before?
Mr. M: I worked at Lawrence Township, Warren Township, and that was at three different schools. This will be my twenty-fifth year working at schools.
Daphne: What brought you to work at HSE?
Mr. M: The opportunity brought itself to be. People that I know spoke very highly of this school, and said that I would be a good chance to get my foot caught in the door. So I applied online, and went through the whole process to get here, and here I am!
Daphne: What do you think of the people at HSE so far?
Mr. M: The people that I’ve met are very welcoming. They’re kind, warm…
Daphne: What about the students?
Mr. M: Well, you are the first student to have greeted me, so I’d say that they are very nice so far, and I also have neighbors who go to this school.
Daphne: Do you think that this school is big?
Mr. M: Yes, this is a very big school. There are about two times as many students that go here than my last school, so yes.
Daphne: Is there anything else that you would like to let our readers know?
Mr. M: Well, I am a Chicago Bears fan, I love watching football, athletics, concert, and I like playing games and sports, too.
