Mark Pettengill, Mike Marble and Kim Ciabattini have accepted new positions as principals in Murrieta.

Three new principals will take over duties at schools in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District, superintendent Pat Kelley recently announced.

Mark Pettengill has been named the new principal at Murrieta Valley High School. He had been serving as principal at Shivela Middle School the last three years. He also previously worked as assistant principal at Murrieta Valley for six years.

Pettengill replaces Eric Mooney, who resigned to become director of curriculum and instruction for the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District.

"I look forward to returning to Murrieta Valley High School to unite with friends, colleagues and community members," Pettengill said. "While I am sad to say goodbye to my Shivela family, I look forward to being a Nighthawk once again and serving the school community and supporting students."

Pettengill has been an educator for 34 years. He has taught high school and college classes, served as head football coach and as a college athletic director. He earned his doctorate degree in educational leadership from La Sierra University.

Mike Marble has been named principal at Shivela Middle School. He has been the principal at Cole Canyon Elementary School since 2010. Marble, who taught previously in the Carlsbad Unified School District, holds a B.A. from San Diego State, a Masters in Educational Administration from Point Loma Nazarene University and a Tier One Administrative Services Credential.

Kelley announced that Kim Ciabattini will replace Marble as principal at Cole Canyon Elementary. She has been serving there as assistant principal.

"Mrs. Ciabattini has built strong relationships with students, parents and staff over the past three years. She will serve as a strong, caring leader for the Cole Canyon community," Marble said.”

Ciabattini previously served as an assistant principal for Santa Rosa Academy for three years and she has 18 years of elementary teaching experience. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from San Diego State University and a Master of Education from Azusa Pacific University.
