    Glencoe is off to see the Wizard

    Passion for education

    brings Bob Macauley to


    Catch-up on the Fall Sports season, page 8

    Though she covered her legs with long skirts during class, her bruises became vis-ible on the playground. The recess super-visor was teaching her to tumble when he noticed her injured legs. Concerned about the third grade girl, he inquired about her bruises. The young girl was being abused. Bob Macauley, then 19 years old and working as a playground supervisor at the elementary school, was deeply troubled.

    I felt an exaggerated sense of rage and violation, he recalled.

    Macauley notified a counselor, and the young girl was given the help she needed. The incident inspired Macauley to become a teacher, answering what he describes as a life-long calling.

    After 19 years of working at Sisters High School in Central Oregon, that calling has led Macauley to Glencoe. He takes the place of long-time principal Carol Lough-ner, who retired last year.

    There are only a few high schools Id want to work at, and Glencoe is one of them, Macauley said. The culture here is outstanding. ... I hope to enhance the good things that are already going on here.

    Suzanne Lind, Macauleys assistant at Sisters, said his ability to connect with stu-dents is one of his best traits.

    [Its] a unique trait in an administra-

    tor, Lind said. Oftentimes they focus on the administration and leadership of the school as opposed to being connected with the students. [Macauley] connects.

    After only a few weeks at Glencoe, Macauley has already made a positive im-pression on senior Becca Baugh. Baugh, along with seniors Rebecca Holland and Samantha Fancher, met with Macauley to discuss the new Honors Pass policy, which did not allow students to work in the drama hall practice rooms. Macauley was more than willing to accommodate the students, and the problem was quickly resolved.

    The discussion shifted from policy to theatre when Baugh and her friends noticed the play bills lining Macauleys shelves.

    He just [got excited] and talked about [theatre] for 25 minutes, Baugh said. It was amazing.

    Macauley was a high school football player and a player in the Canadian Foot-ball League, Canadas equivalent of the NFL.

    However, his interests were not limited to football. Macauley was also involved in theatre in high school, playing Harry MacAfee in his schools production of Bye Bye Birdie. Macauley said that be-ing involved in diverse activities gave him an understanding of the importance of in-volvement for students.

    With spectacular special effects, innovative set de-sign, and a swarm of Munchkins played by elemen-tary students, Glencoe Theatres fall musical, The Wizard of Oz, presents a new take on the timeless story.

    The production, based on the classic 1939 film, follows the journey of Dorothy and her dog, Toto, through their adventures in the mystical Land of Oz.

    Even though its been around for a while, the story never gets old, musical director Jeanine Stas-sens said. Its not a show that [kids these days] see all the time.

    Drama teacher Lori Daliposon said the renowned production will be given a new twist.

    The set itself is going to be way more intense, Daliposon said. Theres some really fun special ef-fects to look forward to this year. We have the Wicked Witch melting, and a lot of pyrotechnic effects. This isnt going to be your grandmas Wizard of Oz.

    New principal Bob Macauley was impressed with Glencoes school spirit and tradi-tion of excellence, which motivated him to apply here after working 19 years at Sisters High School.

    MACAULEY:New principal comes from diverse background

    During his time at Sisters High School, Bob Macauley taught Humanities and Social

    Studies. In 1999, he was promoted to Assistant Principal. Macauley was also the head coach of Sisters High Schools

    football team.

    According to Macauley, 83% of students at Sisters High were involved with activities, which he believes is a factor in the low .06% drop out rate.

    Everyone deserves to have a good, rigorous education. [The education system] has to allow people to grow and meet them where theyre at, he said. We have to break the cycle of failure.

    Macauley has based his administration on that belief.

    He treats all of his students as individuals, regardless of whether theyre TAG or in special education or [if] theyre having a hard time even coming to school, Lind said. He builds relationships.

    In Macauleys experience, building relationships with all students has made a large difference in their success rate, even against the odds. In 1998, under the supervision of program manager Dan Saraceno, Sisters High School became one of the first high schools to participate in Heart of Oregon, a program that takes troubled drop-outs and pays them for community work while helping them earn GEDs.

    Because of the program, 75% of the students went on to a trade school or a 2-year college, Macauley said.

    Those were the kids who were going to fail, and we got three out of four of them back, said

    Macauley.Kristy Rawls, activities director at Sisters, said

    Macauleys commitment to helping students has affected many students at Sisters.

    There are kids that are in school and graduated because of him and his caring relationships, Rawls said. There is story after story of kids being affected by him.

    Macauleys enthusiastic nature has affected the staff he worked with, according to Lind.

    Hes a very positive force, she said. His school spirit rubs off on you. You cant help but get into what hes doing,

    Since her initial meeting with Macauley, Becca Baugh now high fives him in the hallways of Glencoe. She said she believes the new principal is a good fit for the school.

    He knows what he wants and what he should be doing, Baugh said. He wants to let kids know that theyre going to be noticed.

    Macauley said he just hopes to give all Glencoe students the school they want to have.

    It doesnt matter who they are, or what the situation is, I think that we still want to respect the dignity of each person, Macauley said. I just want every child to fit. Id like this to be four positive years for the students.

    New teachers bring change to Glencoe

    Most people would love to have a former Olympic athlete as a gym teacher. This year, P.E. students will have that opportunity with new physical education teacher Sheridan Tator. Tator played water polo for Estonia at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.

    Tator laughed about the experience, saying that Estonias team wasnt very good, and that although she loves water polo, being a teacher is what she had always wanted.

    Outside of school, Tator plays tennis, takes care of her dog, and participates in squirrel fishing. The objective of squirrel fishing is to lift a squirrel off the ground with a peanut and a string.
