Dr. David Schexnaydre

The 2021-2022 school year is my fourth year as Principal of Harry Hurst Middle School, and my 17th year in education, all of which have been in St. Charles Parish Public Schools. I began my teaching career in 2005 at R.K. Smith Middle School, where I taught reading, writing, and social studies, while also coaching football, basketball, baseball, and track. In 2012 I was appointed as an Assistant Principal at J.B. Martin Middle School, where I served for four years, until being appointed Assistant Principal at Destrehan High School, where I served for two years prior to being appointed as Principal of Harry Hurst.

I am a 2001 graduate of Destrehan High School, where I was a Varsity Letterman in football, basketball, and track. I received my Bachelor's degree from LSU, and my Master's and Ph.D. from the University of New Orleans.
