The board announced that Dr. Kip Glazer will be taking over for Michael Jimenez next year as the school principal.

Glazer is currently the principal of San Marcos High School in the Santa Barbara Unified School District. She has also served as a teacher, assistant principal, dean of students, and an Instructional Technology coach.

Superintendent Nellie Meyer spoke during the board meeting about the new principal.

“[Glazer] is an expert in how to effectively integrate technology into the curriculum and is also well versed in coding and gaming,” Meyer said. Glazer has also written several articles and book chapters on games-based learning and teaching.

“Kip speaks Korean fluently and has been learning Spanish. As an English language learner herself, she is enthusiastic about finding innovative ways to serve all students,” Meyer said. 

Glazer earned her BA in Political Science from California Polytechnic University, her credential and master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Chapman University, and her doctorate in Learning Technologies from Pepperdine University.

Glazer attended the meeting virtually. “I believe that, when I was a teacher, I always tried to be the teacher that our own children should have and that’s the goal of mine and I want to be the principal that every one of our students and staff would like to have,” Glazer said.

“‘I am thrilled to be selected as the next Principal for Mountain View High School,’” Glazer said in a statement issued by the district. “‘I am excited to learn more about this great school and its community that clearly believes in investing in education. I look forward to getting to know all the students, staff, and families in the coming days. Go Spartans!’”
