Palo Alto High School alumnus Todd Feinberg will return to the school as assistant principal next year, pending approval by the Board of Education tonight (Tuesday), Assistant Superintendent Scott Bowers announced in a press release.
Feinberg will replace Chuck Merritt, who will become principal of El Carmelo Elementary School next year.
"It is great to welcome Todd back to his alma mater. His knowledge of the school from a student's perspective, along with his energy and enthusiasm, will certainly help him make a smooth transition to his new position," Paly Principal Jacquie McEvoy said.
Feinberg began teaching in 2001 at JLS Middle School in the opportunity program. In 2005, he was appointed Dean of Students at Ralston Middle School in the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District and became assistant principal there in 2007.
