New Berney Principal Named

Glover named new Berney Elementary principal

Walla Walla Public Schools announces Sarah Glover has been named principal for Berney Elementary following an extensive hiring process. The principal selection process included two dozen staff, district, school board and parent representatives serving on the Berney Elementary principal screening and interview team. In addition, more than 50 families, community members, students and faculty attended the meet and greet and submitted input.

“Being named principal of Berney Elementary is a tremendous honor and responsibility,” said Glover. “As principal, I look forward to getting to know everyone and fostering a positive learning environment where every child feels valued, supported, and inspired to reach their goals.”

Sarah Glover currently serves as the academic interventionist at Adams Elementary in the Central Valley School District in Spokane. She completed her principal internship last school year. Before becoming the academic interventionist, Glover spent six years teaching 4th grade and served two years as a special education teacher, both at Adams Elementary. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and Master’s in Education from Grand Canyon University and a Master’s Degree in educational leadership from Eastern Washington University.

Joining Glover on her new adventure in Walla Walla is her husband of 20 years and four school-aged children. Two of her children will attend Wa-Hi, one will be 6th grader next year and the other will be a 5th grader at Berney. Sarah and her husband Corey keep busy with their kids' activities, but also enjoy playing golf and traveling. They have recently started playing pickleball and look forward to participating in community events and attending Walla Walla Sweet baseball games this summer.

“We are excited to immerse ourselves in all the things that make Walla Walla amazing,” said Glover. “I want to express my heartfelt thanks to the district and community for this opportunity to lead Berney Elementary. My family and I look forward to beginning this journey with you.”

Glover will report July 1, 2024.
