My name is Mr. Langenmayr and I am a teacher at the best darn school in the county...LITERALLY!! West Port High School has been the highest performing high school in Marion County for many years. I only mention this because I want you to know how much I love our school, our staff, and most of all our students. I am grateful to work in such a wonderful environment, and it is my privleage to come to work at West Port each day!
So...who is this Langenmayr guy anyway??
So glad you asked! I am a Florida native and a home grown product of Marion county. I graduated from Forest High School in 1998 and immediately enlisted into the United States Coast Guard. My time in the Coast Guard sent me on many adventures, from the Arctic Circle to the Equator...from New Jersey to California. After serving our country for five exciting years I was ready to begin college, and in 2007 I earned a Bachelors degree in History from the University of Florida. After college I was not entirely sure what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, however, since I was a young kid I have felt called by higher powers to give teaching and coaching a try. In the Summer of 2007 I was blessed, and Ms. Jayne Ellspermann (Former National Principal of the Year in 2014) made me an official part of the Wolf Pack!
Why is it so important to teach and learn?
I'm still pretty young, maybe not by kid standards, but I still say yes ma'am and no sir to most folks; and I still get told that I have a lot to learn. In fact, maybe that's the point of school, realizing that we all, students, teachers, and parents alike, still have a lot to learn about each other and how are world works.
