      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 1styear as the Principal of Krueger Middle School.  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 Krueger 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 Krueger Middle School. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to call or email me.

      Mrs. Diana Clark

      Happy 23-24 school year, my name is Diana Clark. It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I am joining Krueger Middle as one of the Assistant Principals. I am truly honored to accept this role and look forward to working alongside the Krueger falcons, staff, families and community.  


      I am from the “Windy City” and home to the original deep dish pizza and DA BEARS(Chicago, IL);  however San Antonio has become home for the past 5 years. While in Illinois, I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Illinois State University in 2003 and my Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership from Concordia University in 2014. 


      I am entering my twentieth year in education. For fifteen of those years, I had the privilege to serve students and families of the Chicago Public School District. I spent twelve years as an elementary classroom teacher and three years as a High School Assistant Principal on the West Side of Chicago. Once moving to San Antonio, I served as a Literacy Instructional Coach for West Avenue (2018) and then Montgomery Elementary (2019-2023).


      My husband and I have an amazing 8 year old (Honesty) who grows taller and taller EVERYDAY! (She’s the tallest in the class now.) We hope to add a furry pup to the family one day soon that can join us on the trails and trips to Starbucks for a pup cup. 


      I am excited and eager to serve our Krueger falcons, staff, families and community. Feel free to stop by and say hello. I look forward to meeting and getting to know each one of you. If there is anything I can assist you with now or in the future, please let me know.
