LILBURN — Fifteen months after Michael Zinn was named principal at Berkmar High, he’s requested to transfer within Gwinnett County Public Schools.
The announcement was made on Wednesday by the district, which said Zinn requested the transfer for personal reasons. Jane Stegall was appointed interim principal, effective immediately. The announcement came on the sixth day of the new school year.
“He’s been a successful assistant principal in the past, and he’ll be taking that role once again,” GCPS spokesman Jorge Quintana said. Quintana said he didn’t know what school Zinn was moving to.
Stegall was Brookwood High’s principal from 2002-07, and has worked as a principal mentor for GCPS since her retirement, and as an interim principal at other schools during a vacancy. She was an interim principal at South Gwinnett High last year.
Zinn previously was an an assistant principal at Archer High from 2010 to 2012. Zinn began his teaching career in Bartow County and was also an administrator in Oconee County. He holds degrees from the Art Institute of Atlanta, Kennesaw State University, Georgia State University and Walden University. He replaced Ken Johnson, who left for Archer after serving as Berkmar’s principal from 2004-2012.
