Weishalla steps into principal role

Karla Weishalla has taught various positions at the Bertha-Hewitt School for the past 22 years and was recently promoted to

interim principal to better support her fellow teachers

by Trinity Gruenberg

Bertha-Hewitt’s interim principal is a very familiar face in the school community.

Karla Weishalla was elated to be accepted into her new administrative role for the remainder of the school year.

“It’s awesome. I really enjoy it,” said Weishalla. “Everyone has been super helpful.”

She graduated from Bertha-Hewitt in 1991. Her father Dale Howe was also a teacher at the school from the 1970s-1980s.

Weishalla returned to Bertha-Hewitt at the start of the 2000-2001 school year to start her new job as a high school science teacher.

In the past few years, she wanted more of a leadership role, branching out from teaching science to teaching the Entrepreneur class, FACS, doing career counseling, managing PSEO students and driver’s education.

“I went back to school for the principal’s license because I was tired of not being able to do anything about things I thought were important,” explained Weishalla. . .
