Pyongduk “Di” Yim was selected as Burlingame High School’s new principal, effective July 1.

Her appointment, on the recommendation of Superintendent Scott Laurence, was approved by a unanimous vote of the San Mateo Union High School District Board of Trustees May 9 in San Mateo.

Yim, a professional educator for 19 years, is currently the chief academic officer at Fremont High School in Sunnyvale where she serves as administrative liaison to various departments including English, English learner programs, guidance math, special education, social science and world language.
