Dallas — Have you ever wondered, “What if I was the principal for a day?” When I was in school?
On Wednesday, WFAA’s Shinshi Aizagile and our station general manager, Bradrumsey, got the chance thanks to the Day Program Principal (PFAD) of the Dallas Independent School District.
This program aims to help non-educated people understand the strengths and challenges facing Dallas ISD Schools.
Brad spent the day as principal of the George Dee Lee Vanguard School, and Izzy spent the day at the Townview Magnet Center, one of the jewels in the DISD crown.
According to the school’s website, the school’s mission is to “provide an environment in which each individual’s unique values, dignity and abilities are not only recognized, but also nurtured and celebrated.”
“We enable highly qualified students to interact with their intellectual peers in academic, creative, aesthetic and social efforts to meet today’s and tomorrow’s challenges and become lifelong learners and responsible citizens. We want to provide an educational experience that will help us to improve society as a whole in an ever-changing world. “
During the day, the principal was guided by a student like junior Alex Garcia who called the program a “great opportunity.”
“I think PFAD was a great event. I was able to meet a lot of people. To be honest, it was great. It was great to teach them throughout the school and show them what we did. It was a great opportunity and the best I have ever been to. “
Senior Jacob Gonzales said he wants people like Izzy, who attended the principal for a day, to understand what it’s like to be a principal. I really understand the students, not from the body, and just with the community … I’m part of our family, “Gonzales said.
Emma Blackburn, a sophomore who enrolled in school last year but was unable to attend directly due to a pandemic, said she had learned a lot about school herself.
“So I learned a lot while I could teach you everything,” she explained.
After spending a day as principal, Izzy said the students she met were cheerful, energetic, kind and confident.
Gonzales said it was due not only to the work of the course, but also to the support of each other.
“It really builds confidence in the sense that at this age, or even in college, we’re taking courses that high school students can’t even imagine taking,” he explained. Town view house “
Izzy said she was really impressed and these students would make a big difference in our world.
