Dr. Melissa Alcala

It is a privilege to serve such a great community of learners! With 20 years of educational experience, this is my first year as Director of STEM. For the past three years, I was Principal of Roan Forest Elementary School. I have also worked as an Assistant Principal and Academic Dean of Instruction at various NEISD middle school campuses. Prior to administration, I was a math teacher at the high school and middle school levels in the Schertz, Judson and NEISD school districts. With PreK-12 experience, I know the continuum of educational services and approaches necessary to promote academic success for students. I look forward to working with our families and faculty to promote the educational achievement of our STEM students.

I am delighted to serve as the Assistant Director of your STEM Academy! I have been in public education for over 7 years, as a teacher and a coach at the middle and high school levels. I also served in the US Air Force on active duty, as a member of the Texas Air National Guard, and as a civil servant in the capacity of Supply Manager, Training Instructor and Curriculum Designer. I truly believe in putting our students in positions where they can be successful and I want every student to get the maximum out of their educational experience here at STEM, both in the classroom and with extracurricular activities. I look forward to working with each family, student and staff member to promote the educational experience for all of our students for now and into their future.
