Klein takes the reins of Etna Elementary

For Keith Klein, it’s a new school year and a new job.

Klein is the new principal at Etna Elementary.

Principal Klein brings experience to the position. He taught sixth grade at West Side School in Dayton, Idaho and fifth grade at Clark County School in Las Vegas.

In Brigham City he was a principal for Bunderson Elementary and Alice C Harris Intermediate School.

The new principal’s degrees, a bachelors and masters, come from Utah State University.
Klein said he enjoyed his previous position in Utah, but was concerned over class size. At the same time he was impressed with the Star Valley-Cokeville school district’s approach to education.
“First, I left a good job for a great job,” he emphasized.
“I carefully considered and examined all that Lincoln County School District No. 2  has to offer when I considered applying for a position in the district,” he said. “I recognized superior leadership, teaching, support staff, programs, and facilities here.”

He continued, “In addition, I had become frustrated with class sizes and the effect large classes in Utah had on students and teachers. I knew this is the place where I could grow and hopefully be an asset to the district teachers, and students.”

Klein advised that education involves a series of improvements.

“I thoroughly live to be a part of the processes in education whereby students grow socially, emotionally, and academically,” he said. “No job could bring me more satisfaction than participating and supporting students as we prepare them for success at the next level.”

Principal Klein concluded,  “I cannot imagine a better situation in which to serve children.

‘The support staff, teachers, parents, and students have all been a joy and pleasure to work with.

“The positive upbeat attitude is so amazing I sometimes think it can’t be true.
“This is truly a great place to think, learn, achieve and care.”

One thought on “Klein takes the reins of Etna Elementary

  1. I know Keith Klein well and have followed his career from his being a student in my classes at USU through the various schools who were lucky enough to employ him. He’s one super educator. I’m sure Star Valley will great value this fine administrator and master teacher. I also have very fond memories of working with the great teachers and administrators in Star Valley over a period of several years when I came up and taught classes for educators working on master’s degrees.

    Great place, great people.

    Retired USU Professor and Department Head
