The new Administrative Leadership Intern, Mr. Jonathan Dupski, aims to bring fresh, new ideas to the Mt. Hebron High School community. His passion for educating and connecting with students provides him with great potential at Mt. Hebron.
Leadership has played a vital role in Mr. Dupski’s life since he began in the education system. Even as a math teacher at Atholton High School, he wanted to achieve the assistant principal position.
“It’s kind of been my aspiration since high school,” said Mr. Dupski. He shows a clear affinity for leadership, and he hopes that his desire to connect with students will inspire other administrators at Mt. Hebron to improve their relationships with students.

By looking up to those who have achieved significant leadership roles in the school system, Mr. Dupski has accomplished his goals and followed in the footsteps of his role models.
