      Mr. John Merrill

      My name is John Merrill and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and share my excitement about beginning my 5th year as the Principal of Montgomery Elementary.  Since the day I stepped on this campus, it has been my honor and privilege to serve this incredible community and the Roosevelt Cluster! 

      I am a native of Sacramento, California; however, San Antonio has been my home for the past 14 years.  I received my Bachelors of Arts in Government from Sacramento State in 2005 and my Masters in Education from Trinity University in 2013. In 2013, I was provided with the incredible opportunity to serve in the Roosevelt cluster as the Assistant Principal of Windcrest Elementary (2013-2017).  In 2018, I found my true home at Montgomery as the Assistant Principal and now Principal. 

       My wife Melinda and I are proud parents to 4 amazing boys, Jase (12), Jaxon (10), Jameson (6), and Jaeden (5).  We have truly been blessed with a wonderful family.  Also, we as a family are devoted fans of the Cleveland Browns.  Yes, those Cleveland Browns.  I just keep telling my boys… as long as they get better each game, it doesn’t matter if they win a game (I wonder how long they will buy that!)

      I look forward to continuing this journey with each of you this year. There are amazing things happening at Montgomery and I am honored, excited, and humbled to have been selected as Principal.  There is truly no place that I would rather be than right here at Montgomery Elementary. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to call or email me.

      Hi, my name is TJ Click.  I am excited to join this wonderful campus at Montgomery as the assistant principal.  I know there are wonderful things that take place on this campus everyday and I am thrilled to be here.

      My last teaching assignment was at Windcrest Elementary School teaching 5th grade Science.  Prior to that, I taught 5th grade Math and Science for four years.  I started my teaching career in Midland, TX teaching 6th grade Math and Science. 

      My wife and I have been married for nine years.  We have two children, Cassidy, who is 7 and in the first grade.  And Cobe who is 5 and in kindergarten.  We enjoy spending time together outdoors, going to the beach or doing anything around water. 

      I look forward to getting to know the students of Montgomery this year.  If you need anything from me, please feel free to reach out via email at tclick@neisd.net.
