IUSD Superintendent Terry Walker on Friday announced a trio of new principals for the 2014-15 school year.
Christina Giguiere, who currently leads a high-achieving elementary school in Redondo Beach, was named as the next principal of Canyon View Elementary School; Thomas Potwora, who has been an elementary principal for the last 10 years in the Saddleback Valley Unified School District, will be principal at Meadow Park Elementary; and Harmony Hager, a Stonegate Elementary School teacher who has taken on administrative duties this year, has been tapped to become Stonegate’s principal.
All will begin their new roles July 1.
Let’s start with Giguiere, who began her career in 2003 at IUSD’s Turtle Rock Elementary School, teaching first and third grades. In 2007, she was hired as a credential program coordinator at UC Irvine, and since 2012 she has served as principal of Tulita Elementary School in Redondo Beach.
“Not only is she an accomplished school leader who has served most recently as principal at a high-performing elementary school in Southern California, she’s also a former IUSD teacher who has led teacher preparation programs at the University of California, Irvine,” Superintendent Walker said. “Most important, she is committed to the long-term success of Canyon View.”
