Milt Werner

Longtime educator Milt Werner has been named interim principal of Alameda's St. Joseph Notre Dame High School for 2015-16 school year.

"He comes to us with a distinguished career that includes an impressive commitment to education, leadership and service and a deep connection to Catholic schools, Alameda and educational excellence in the San Francisco Bay Area," said Rev. George Alengaden, pastor of St. Joseph Basilica, in making the announcement.

One of Werner's first assignments was as a science teacher at St. Joseph's High School from 1971-1975. After serving as principal of James Logan High School in Union City, he became vice principal at Alameda High School. During nearly a decade in Alameda schools, he became principal at Encinal High School, where he partnered with UC Berkeley to implement an interactive mathematics program. The school was selected as a California State Model school for business careers.

Werner has also served as director of the Sacred Heart Schools in Atherton, as well as principal at San Leandro High School, Marin Catholic High School in Kentfield and Washington High School in Fremont. From 2008-2010, Werner was superintendent of the Fremont Unified School District, where he was responsible for 54,000 K-adult students at 42 schools with 4,000 employees.

Closer to home, he has served on the board of St. Joseph Elementary and the Alameda Education Foundation.

Werner replaces Simon Chiu, who is leaving the Alameda high school after eight years as principal to become president of St. Francis High School in Mountain View. The search for a permanent principal continues.
