9 New Principals For Peninsula Schools

The local school district is preparing for a new year, and many new faces; among them will be 9 new principals. Pegge Erkeneff with the district…

Erkeneff: “We’ve got principals that are new at Homer High and Homer Middle School, at K-Beach Elementary here locally as well as Nikiski North Star and Sterling and Cooper Landing. And then across the water down in Homer in Seldovia, we’ll have a new principal and teacher and also in Port Graham, and then in Paul Banks, too, down in the Homer area.”


We asked Erkeneff if it will be difficult for the district to adjust to the new administrators…


Erkeneff: “Not significantly, in that some of the people that have been hired as our principals have already been a principal in the district, so they’re familiar with the district, or they were an assistant principal.”


The full list of new principals includes:


  • Homer High School principal: Doug Waclawski
  • Homer High School assistant principal: Allison Mall
  • Homer Middle School principal: Kari Dendurent
  • K-Beach Elementary School principal: Nate Crabtree
  • Nikiski North Star Elementary School principal: Margaret Gilman
  • Paul Banks Elementary School principal: Eric Pederson
  • Port Graham: Nancy Kleine
  • Sterling and Cooper Landing School regional administrator: Sheryl Hingley
  • Susan B. English – Seldovia, principal and teacher: Judy Standafer
