New Principal at Topanga Elementary


After eight years at Topanga Elementary Charter School, Nicole Sheard decided to move closer to home and is moving on to Canyon Charter Elementary School in Santa Monica.

The Principal Selection Committee of the LAUSD announced that Steve Gediman will replace Sheard and takes on his new position as principal on July 17.

“Mr. Gediman brings a wealth of experience as a teacher, coordinator, assistant principal and principal,” the committee states. “His philosophy is very much in alignment with the goals of our charter and we are confident he 
will guide us in moving forward in teaching and learning.”

“I will certainly miss Topanga after my eight years there,” said Sheard. “Steve Gediman will be a great replacement.”
