Tricia “Trish” Corsetti has been selected to serve as principal for Commodore Options School, the Bainbridge Island School District has announced.

Corsetti will transition into the role on July 1.

Corsetti isn’t exactly new to the school. This school year, she has served as Commodore’s dean of students and since 2003, Corsetti has taught science at Eagle Harbor High School.

“The interview team was impressed with Trish’s leadership skills and her strong passion for Commodore’s programs,” said District Superintendent Peter Bang-Knudsen.

“Trish’s sense of humor, positive energy and collaborative nature will serve her well as she leads Commodore,” Bang-Knudsen added.

Corsetti will take the helm of Commodore from Sheryl Belt, who has been serving as the school’s interim principal since the departure of Dave Shockley last summer. Corsetti’s appointment was approved by the Bainbridge Island School Board on March 29.

“This is an incredible opportunity for me to lead Commodore Options into a new stage of growth, development, and continued excellence while supporting and serving [the] Bainbridge Island School District,” Corsetti said.

”I am committed to providing options for our families in a creative, collaborative, student-centered and multi-age learning community,” she said.

Corsetti holds a master’s degree in science from Lesley College where she studied environmental education. She received her teaching credentials from Chapman University and her principal certification from Western Washington University. Corsetti and her husband live on Bainbridge and have two teenage children.
