RE@LCast™: Associate Principal Talks Vaping At Middle School

by | Dec 12, 2021 | RE@L StudentCorner | 0 comments

Welcome to RE@LCast™, our first ever podcast from This being our first is somewhat of a prototype which will pave the way for future episodes.

RE@LCast™ is a podcast that allows all of us to hear from authentic educators in the field and the day-to-day and sometimes unique issues they are navigating.

If you are an educator yourself, there will be much to learn from colleagues. If you are not an educator, our RE@LCast™ can help you better understand the challenges and opportunities our educators are facing in today’s schools.

In this first-ever edition of RE@LCast, I am pleased to include the views and experiences of Mr. Jon Baudek, an associate principal at a Wisconsin middle school. Our focus on this episode of RE@LCast is™ middle schoolers, vaping, and how an associate principal addresses vaping at the school level.

Thank you, Jon, for sharing with our RE@LCast™ audience your insights from the perspective of an associate principal!
