Message from the Superintendent
Dear TTUSD Community,
It’s hard to believe it’s May already, with summer right around the corner!
In May, we like to celebrate our TTUSD staff members. In honor of each team member’s contribution and the many observances that fall in May, TTUSD has dedicated this month as Staff Appreciation Month.
Our entire team does so much each and every day for our students and each other, and we appreciate them. Check out a short but fun video to thank our staff.
Please join us in celebrating and recognizing our staff!
Thank you so much, and happy TTUSD Staff Appreciation Month to our team!
Superintendent Chief Learning Officer
We have some upcoming changes in our leadership team that we want to share with you.
Effective July 1, 2022:
Kerstin Kramer has been promoted to Executive Director of Educational Services (all things related to instruction!) for TTUSD.
Rachael Kuttel has been appointed as Glenshire Elementary’s principal and Kyle Mohagen as Glenshire Elementary’s assistant principal.
Jenni Dewald has been appointed as Kings Beach Elementary’s principal.
Jason Estabrook has been appointed as Alder Creek Middle School's assistant principal.
Kelli Twomey, who oversees TTUSD’s Communications, recently announced her departure from our district. While she will still be based in North Lake Tahoe, she is taking on a new challenge in school PR outside of our district. We will miss her and wish her the best in her new chapter.
Do you like working with kids? We need you!
TTUSD is hiring and we offer on-the-job training! We are actively recruiting staff in the following positions:

Many of our positions offer benefits, paid sick leave and holidays, and a pension, and all of them are a great opportunity to work with our wonderful students.
