Principal for West Marin School

07/05/2012

Shoreline Unified School District Board of Trustees announced that Matt Nagle will take over as principal of West Marin School. Mr. Nagle, who has served in that role at Juana Briones School in Palo Alto since 2009, has been an elementary school principal for 10 years. His wife, Claudia Penalosa, is a teacher in the Spanish immersion program at Escondido School, and will continue in that position for the next year. Their children, Matteo and Anais, will be attending first and seventh grade, the latter at West Marin School. Mr. Nagle holds a Bachelor’s degree in journalism and Mexican-American studies from the University of California at Santa Cruz, and a Master’s in education administration from the University of California at Riverside. Stephen Rosenthal, who resigned last week as superintendent of Shoreline Unified School District, said Mr. Nagle had a reputation for being a “fantastic” communicator and has worked well with communities to keep the focus on the children.
