LVJUSD Welcomes New Principal

Kristie StarkovichThe Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District welcomes Kristie Starkovich as the new principal for the satellite elementary campus. Kelly Bowers, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools, said “We are so pleased to have Ms. Starkovich join our leadership team. Her experience, enthusiasm and collaborative leadership style make her a perfect fit for our educational community.

 

Kristie Starkovich joins the administrative team with over 20 years of experience as an elementary school educator. She has served as a classroom teacher, intervention teacher, vice principal, and principal, primarily with Calaveras Unified School District (CUSD) and Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD).


Ms. Starkovich is passionate about education and is eager to explore innovative and effective strategies to enhance student learning. Starkovich believes it takes a team to cultivate a climate in which students thrive and become lifelong learners. She looks forward to working with the entire school community, students, staff and families.


Ms. Starkovich grew up in Livermore. She attended Sunset Elementary School, Mendenhall Middle School, and graduated from Livermore High School. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies with Concentration in Foreign Language from California State University East Bay (formerly Hayward), and a Master of Arts degree from National University.


Ms. Starkovich demonstrates the power of persistence and perseverance which have allowed her to learn, grow, and succeed professionally and personally. She values spending time with her husband Aaron, stepdaughter Nicole, and stepson Darren. Nicole will be a junior at Livermore High School in the fall. Walking her big yellow Labrador retriever, riding bikes, and placing her toes in the sand are her joys in life. Last year, she completed her first triathlon and is looking forward to training for many more.


Principal Starkovich is ready to get to know her new school. “I am honored to join the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District and return to the community I call home,” she said.
