Terri Quesinberry, whose departure as Alisal Elementary principal was announced last week, has been hired as the principal at Sunset Elementary School in Livermore.
Quesinberry will be Sunset's new principal after working in Pleasanton Unified School District for 10 years. She was a teacher for seven years and then served as Alisal's principal for the past three years.
Quesinberry has not responded to requests for comment as of 4 p.m. Tuesday.
In a statement released Thursday by the Livermore school district, Quesinberry said she is excited to join the Livermore school district and looks forward to meeting the Sunset school community.
Prior to coming to Pleasanton, Quesinberry worked in the Fremont school district with Pleasanton Unified School District Superintendent Parvin Ahmadi, who said that Quesinberry has been interested in more opportunities at the district level in instructional and staff development.
However, according to Ahmadi, there were no additional opportunities at the district level in Pleasanton's district for her to pursue.
"As people look at advancing their careers, they look for opportunities that may not exist in their own district or their workplace," said Ahmadi. "We will greatly miss working with her."
Ahmadi added the district is currently looking for a new Alisal principal, and Quesinberry will be helping the district during the transition and interview process.
"We hope to have the new principal identified very soon, so that he or she is able to join us for our first leadership meetings," Ahmadi said.
