TRUCKEE, Calif. — At the May 4 Board of Education meeting, TTUSD trustees unanimously appointed Kerstin Kramer as principal of Glenshire Elementary.

Kramer comes to the district with over 23 years of experience in education, as both an educator and administrator. Currently, she is with the Snoqualmie Valley School District in Washington as principal of the Snoqualmie Elementary School.

Kramer’s educational preparation includes a Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership as well as a Bachelors of Arts in Zoology from the University of Washington. She also obtained her Teaching Certificate from the University of Washington.

The school district conducted a thorough recruitment and interview process involving staff, parents and students. The interview process concluded with a “meet and greet” with the finalists.

Kramer is replacing Kathleen Gauthier, who is retiring at the end of the school year. Gauthier has been with the school district for 29 years and is known for creating a strong school community at Glenshire Elementary.

“We are sad to see Kathleen go, but rest assured that Kerstin has the skills, experience, and collaborative leadership style to be a strong asset at Glenshire Elementary and ensure a smooth transition,” said Rob Leri, TTUSD superintendent.
