Sarah DiPrinzio, Assistant Principal

  • I am incredibly grateful to be the Assistant Principal of Truckee Elementary School each and every day. The staff, students and the community are exceptional. Truckee Elementary is an special place where students are granted the opportunity to create and be part of an extraordinary community--something of which I am incredibly passionate about and drew me to want to be the Assistant Principal of Truckee Elementary.

    I grew up in Sparks, Nevada and attended the University of Nevada, Reno where I earned a BA in Journalism and a BS in Psychology. I earned my masters degree from Chico State University in Applied Behavioral Psychology and began working as a school psychologist. I was lucky enough to be granted a position with Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District in 2014 as a school psychologist for the district. I had the unique opportunity to work for a number of the schools in the district and each has their own strengths. In 2017 I was placed as Truckee Elementary’s school psychologist and through a number of fortunate happenstances was granted the opportunity to be the interim Assistant Principal. It was the best decision I have ever made. In Spring of 2018 I became the full-time Assistant Principal.  I love being a part of this community based school and couldn’t imagine any other place I’d rather be.

    I am so thankful to call this school my home base and lucky that it comes with the most beautiful landscape surrounding it. I am passionate about education and serving the students, staff, and community of Truckee Elementary School the best I can. I pledge to work every day to make Truckee Elementary the best place for students.
