We recently had the chance to speak to PALCS High School teacher, Mr. Michael Logue, who has been working at PALCS since 2011. Mr. Logue teaches 11th and 12th grade students Economics, Human Geography, and Street Law.
Mr. Logue grew up and continues to live in southeastern PA with his wife and three children. He enjoys traveling and has been to many different countries including, Panama, Dominican Republic, Canada, Germany, Austria, and Egypt. During his summer break he caddies at a local golf club.
Mr. Logue earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in History from West Chester University as well as his Social Studies Certification for grades 7-12. He began working at PALCS the year after he graduated from college. In high school, he was deeply influenced by his own educational leaders that he felt he had a calling to pursue that career path as well.
“I had a lot of teachers, mentors, and coaches who guided me through middle and high school. I had and continue to have a tremendous amount of respect for their commitment and passion to guide, mentor, and develop students,” reminisced Mr. Logue. “I believe my personality and teaching style fits well in a high school environment,” he explained.
Mr. Logue connects with his students through email, phone, live virtual classes, and school events. “Meeting my students in person for the first time is one of the highlights of my year. I try to attend as many PALCS events as I can, from school dances to graduation, because I look forward to meeting many of my students,” said he said. “My students know that if they need anything, they can contact me and I’ll get back to them very quickly,” he continued.
Mr. Logue attributes PA Leadership’s continuous growth and success to the knowledge, creativity, commitment, passion, and compassion of the PALCS faculty. “We’re a community that deeply and genuinely cares about the needs and desires of our students,” he said. When students enroll at PALCS, they have to develop time management skills and a routine that will work best for them. As Mr. Logue puts it, “you [as a PALCS student] now have the responsibility to create a schedule that works best for you and even more you have a responsibility to keep that schedule,” he explained.
We would like to thank Mr. Logue for taking the time to speak with us and share his story! PALCS has over 160 highly qualified, state certified teachers who are dedicated to our students’ success and well being. Here at PALCS, our students’ are our priority, with hands-on learning, individualized classes, and a flexible schedule PALCS students are given unique opportunities that one might not find in a typical brick-and-mortar school environment.
