Last week, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Mr. Sager, who is a new admin at Highland this year and will be in charge of the Freshman and Sophomore classes.

Mr. Sager, who is looking forward to finally working with high school students and discussing their future with them, decided to be an administrator after he was left wanting more responsibility after a few years of being a social studies teacher. He said that he loved teaching and misses it at times, but is very happy to be at HP. He hopes that people learn that he is very approachable and isn’t there just to discipline students.

Sager, who participated in FFA and a multitude of sports in high school wishes he had iPads during that time. He has high hopes for the implementation of technology at HP and believes that it will help students stay organized, just like it has already helped him, and that it will severely cut back on the amount of paper that needs to be constantly being exchanged between students and staff.

Sager also has very strong beliefs that a great member of an administrative team must be consistent, compassionate and operate with honesty, integrity and dependability. He gathers his inspiration from his family and the Livestrong Foundation motto, “Unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything.” He also drives himself to live “everyday with integrity, strength and, most importantly, values.”
