The Board of Education would like to extend a warm welcome to Temple City Unified School District’s newly appointed Interim Superintendent, Dr. Katherine Fundukian Thorossian.

Dr. Thorossian retired in June 2021 after serving 8 years as the Superintendent for the Monrovia Unified School District.  The depth and breadth of Dr. Thorossian’s experience in education spans over 35 years. She has served as Assistant Superintendent of Education Services in the Glendale Unified School District, Principal of Glendale High School, Assistant Principal of Diamond Bar High School in the Walnut Valley School District, Grade Level Coordinator (included extensive counseling responsibilities), and High School English Teacher.  

Dr. Thorossian earned her doctorate from the University of Southern California.  She received her M.S. in Counseling with an option in Administration from California State University, Los Angeles, and she received her B.A. in English Literature from the University of California at Los Angeles.

We are excited to have Dr. Thorossian join our school community, leveraging her expertise as we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year and as we embark on a search for a permanent superintendent!

Warm and sincere welcome to you Dr. Thorossian!
