By By Sarah Reitzes, Fact Checker

After 5 years at CHS and 38 years in MCPS, assistant principal Leo McDonald is retiring in June.

McDonald has taught nearly every science class that MCPS offers and has also been assistant principal at Poolesville, Sherwood, Redland Middle School and CHS.

“It doesn’t seem real that it has been [this] long that I’ve been doing this,” McDonald said.

McDonald will miss the people he worked with at CHS as well as the students.

“[I will miss] doing different things with everybody, like homecoming and sports games,” McDonald said.

However, he looks forward to spending more time with his grandchildren after he retires.\

“I’m curious about what it will be like seeing everyone going to school when I’m not,” McDonald said.

With his free time, McDonald plans to further develop his photography business.
