Dave Winter, co-adviser

Dave Winter has been advising publications since well before his current students were born. In the spring of 1993, while a floating first-year teacher at Wheeler High School in Marietta, Ga., he was asked this question: “Would you like a classroom?” After answering affirmatively without hesitation, he was told he was the new yearbook adviser. Three schools and more than two decades later, Winter is still at it. He has been at McCallum, advising newspaper and yearbook and teaching photojournalism, since 2015. For the better half of his 53 years, he has been married to his better half. He tries to avoid embarrassing his two amazing children on his social media account but occasionally fails.
