Poth Page: Meet Poth Principal Frank Pawelek
Poth Junior High School Principal Todd Pawelek
By Erin Chacon
Because Poth High School Principal Frank Hosek is retiring this year, Poth Junior High Principal Todd Pawelek will be moving up to the high school. There have been some questions about how he will do things next year. Here are the answers.
Q. What changes do you have planned for the high school?
A. Implementing the new HB 5 graduation requirements will be the biggest change for next year. The Foundation Plan will be phased in next year; it allows students more flexibility in their class selections. We have developed a great initial plan that will continue to be updated based on student need/interest.
Q. What do you think are some areas for improvement?
A. Poth High School has been a staple of excellence, and I want to continue that tradition. I want students to have opportunities that will help prepare them for life after high school.
Q. How would you describe your approach to discipline?
A. There are two necessities that will always be at the forefront of my approach: being fair and being consistent.
Now to change things up, we got to know him a little better.
Q. What’s something interesting about you?
A. I am a very low-key person that loves spending time with my family. I’m married and have three small children that keep me very busy. My hobbies include bow hunting, fishing, and being outdoors.
Q. What should the teachers expect from you as a boss?
A. Teachers should expect a democratic leader who will always make decisions that are best for students.
Poth High School junior Erin Chacon hopes to attend culinary school after graduation. She is the daughter of Melinda and Ricky Jalufka.
