Riverside Brookfield High School Assistant Principal John Passarella uses a Segway to navigate the halls of the school and keep tabs on students between classes. He zips in and out of foot traffic, occasionally pointing out orders to passing students who mostly seem amused by his mode of transportation.
“I can go from one corner of the school to the complete opposite side in seconds!,” is how a proud Passarella puts it.
I’m only 30, but already I feel a little out of touch. We didn’t even have the Internet during my days in high school. I learned how to type on a TYPEWRITER! Now school principals are using self-propelled electric vehicles to rule over their turf. When did this happen?
