Some teenagers like to see what their parent’s job is like on “Bring Your Kid to Work” day, but some students get to experience it every day.

Sophomore Sam Cashel, whose parents are history teacher Tim Cashel and media specialist Maureen Cashel, said, “It’s convenient having them here because my mom can bring things into school if I forget something, and I can leave my stuff in their rooms. Sometimes I wish they weren’t here, though, because if you get in trouble, they hear about it much quicker.”

About a dozen staff members currently have students who go to the high school, and others have had students who already graduated through Webster.

Junior Will Burchett, whose parent is Statesmen Center coordinator Julie Burchett, said he gets asked about what it’s like to be a “teacher’s kid” all the time.

“People always ask me about if it’s a burden to have my mom at school,” Will Burchett said. “I say it’s awesome because I heart my mom.”

Will Burchett gets to eat lunch in his mom’s room with his friends every day, which he said is also a plus for her being there.

“The only problem is she knows all my teachers, so she can keep track of how I’m doing a lot easier and more closely. I guess that’s a good thing, but I don’t like it,”   Will Burchett said.
