Palo Alto High School teacher Trinity Klein has been chosen as a new assistant principal for Gunn High School, the Palo Alto Unified School District announced Thursday (Aug. 11).
Klein would replace Wesley Cedros, who left his position at Gunn to accept an administrative position in the Tamalpais Union High School District. District Superintendent Kevin Skelly, will recommend Klein to the Board of Education on Aug. 23 at the regular board meeting.
Klein has taught at Palo Alto High School for 14 years. She began her career as an English teacher and served as the instructional supervisor of Paly's English department for six years. Last year she served in a leadership role as a teacher on special assignment, according to a district announcement.
She attended the University of Massachusetts and holds a bachelor's degree in comparative literature. She holds a single-subject teaching credential from San Francisco State University and master's in education and has a pending administrative-services credential from Santa Clara University.
Cedros, who was a district psychologist, had been appointed assistant principal in June 2010.
