Seven faculty members say farewell to Warsaw High

With this school year coming to an end, Warsaw High school has multiple changes happening next year. With the schedule turning to a four day week, teachers leaving and positions being replaced, there will be a lot of adjustment for students and teachers. Warsaw High will be saying farewell to a portion of its current beloved staff.

  Principal Randy Luebbert has held his position on the staff for five years. Luebbert will be resigning from his position to work at Waynesville High School in Waynesville as the principal.

     Band director Brandi Holt has been with Warsaw and it’s band students for two years. Holt plans to pursue her master’s degree and to teach music appreciation all while conducting classes. Holt says she is proud of her students and hope they continue to push and strive for being the best version of themselves they can be.

    The English department will be facing two empty spots as English teachers Tricia Foster and Mickey Wheeler leave the district.

  “I really enjoyed the smaller classes and getting to know all of the student body,” Wheeler said. “They made this a really fun year for me.”

  While Wheeler does not know where he would like to go yet, Tricia Foster already has plans to accompany Luebbert and science teacher Bob Foster to Waynesville Missouri.

  “I will miss my Warsaw students next year, but am looking forward to a change. The school I will be teaching in next year is about three times the size of Warsaw, so it will be a big change to be in such a large school. I am excited for the challenges ahead,” Tricia Foster said.
  Bob Foster has been teaching science at Warsaw for six years. Foster plans to teach science at Waynesville after leaving Warsaw.

  “I have enjoyed working with the students, especially in watching them go out and become successful adults,” said Foster.

  Special services math teacher Sue Yates has been an educator for 18 years and will be retiring from Warsaw. Yates was not available for an interview.

 Science teacher David See has been teaching at Warsaw for 36 years.

  Spanish teacher Donna Crouch is leaving foreign language to join the discipline side of academics as the new ISS teacher. Crouch doesn’t plan on teaching foreign languages unless the administration decides otherwise.

  “I have been told that students will be taking Spanish online due to a budget cut,” Crouch said.

  Football coach and assistant principal Danny Morrison will be stepping up to the role of Warsaw High’s principal. Morrison plans to continue coaching despite the new responsibilities he will be loaded with.

  “Assistant principal duties are about 90 percent discipline, dealing with any type of discipline in the school and teacher evaluations thrown in there with that as well. For the most part, those are the main duties of the assistant principal. The head principal includes everything from scheduling, teacher evaluations, budgeting, there’s a whole new line of duties,” Morrison said.
