Alhambra Unified School District (AUSD) Superintendent Laura Tellez-Gagliano and Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Marsha Gilbert, announced their retirement after the end of this school year after serving 12 and 42 years in the District, respectively. According to the Pasadena Star News, before becoming superintendent, Tellez-Gagliano was the assistant superintendent of Human Resources for the AUSD and worked in both the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Garvey School District. Gilbert held various positions in the AUSD–including principal at San Gabriel High School and assistant superintendent of Student Services.
“It’s time [for me to retire], and lots of good people are coming up,” Gilbert said. “I’ve been thankful for every working day in Alhambra. It’s a wonderful community that supports its schools, and I’m proud to say I worked in the AUSD, and I’m particularly proud to say I was principal for San Gabriel High School.”
