TRUCKEE, Calif. — Last week, the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District board of trustees unanimously OK'd the appointment of Logan Mallonee as Truckee High School's assistant principal.
Mallonee began her career as an elementary school teacher in the San Francisco Unified School District for three years before teaching English Language Arts at North Tahoe Middle School in 2008. In 2010, she served as assistant principal of North Tahoe High School, later becoming a TTUSD academic coach
As an academic coach, Mallonee worked with K-12 teachers and administrators, leading district-wide professional development training, including coaching and collaborating with staff to best implement the new Common Core Standards.
"When I worked there (THS) as academic coach, I fell in love with the school," Mallonee said in a statement. "I believe in Truckee High as a true community high school. I want to be part of the reason that the school draws people to live here and stay."
More than 50 people applied for the position, with teachers, parents and other district staff included in the hiring process, according to TTUSD.
Mallonee holds a bachelor's in English Literature, a master's in teaching, and a preliminary administrative credential from the University of San Francisco. She replaces Grant Steunenberg as assistant principal.
