We are excited to announce
Mr. Paul Chick as our new Principal
Welcome, Paul! We are excited to have you joining the Grizzly Family!
Below is a little bit about Paul that he has provided us to share on his behalf.
My wife's name is Mary. She is the high school art teacher at Plainview-Elgin-Millville High School where I was the physics and chemistry teacher. She is an amazing mom, an extraordinary teacher and my best friend.
I have three boys, yes. The youngest is Riley, 16, who will be a junior at PEM HS this year. The second oldest is Garrett who will be 19 in July. Garrett is pursuing civil engineering at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City, SD. This is his second year of college, first year at SDSMT. My oldest son is Collin. He will be 21 in August. He will be starting his 4th year at SDSMT this fall in pursuit of a computer engineering degree.
I like to read and learn new things, exercise (walk, golf, bike), fish, hunt, ride motorcycle and spend time with family and friends. I like meeting new and interesting people. I am very excited about the opportunity Hendricks Public Schools has offered me and I am looking forward to the start of the school year, meeting students, staff, parents and the community. Hendricks sounds like such a wonderful place.
This first year at Hendricks will be my 24th year in education. I started teaching physics and chemistry in 1993 at Winona Senior High School, Winona. In my six years WSHS I taught 9th grade physical science, 11-12th grade physics and coached boys soccer for 3 years and girls soccer for 3 years. I taught physical science and chemistry at John Marshall High School in Rochester for 1 year and my remaining years have been at Plainview-Elgin-Millville High School. In my years at PEM I've taught all sciences except biology and earth science and I have been the head coach of volleyball, track and field, and golf (not all at the same time, most recently golf).
