“It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you as the incoming principal at Incline Elementary School,” Stern said. “It is truly an honor to become a part of the Incline family and community.”  

Stern comes to the community with 12 years of experience as an educator. Most of his career has been spent at the K-8 levels. Stern most recently served as assistant principal and principal at the high school level in northeastern Nevada. 

Stern added, “On a personal level, my wife and I have a 4-year-old son, a 16-month-old daughter, and a 2-month-old daughter. We love watching and playing sports, going hiking, watching movies, and going on road trips.”  

The incoming principal will spend the summer working to ensure a smooth transition by familiarizing himself with the building, community, the unique opportunities Incline Elementary School provides.

“I believe wholeheartedly that every student deserves a quality education and that only happens when everyone works together for the best interests of our children,” Stern said.
