From the Desk of the Assistant Principal:
Hello students, parents, family, and friends. My name is Ms. Melissa Contri, I
would like to take this opportunity to share with you a short biography about myself. I
am a native to Southern California and have lived here my entire life. I have three
children and enjoy to spend my free time with them. I enjoy to watch and attend exciting
adventures and spend time with my extended family.
I had the privilege of attending all my schooling within California, After graduating
from high school, I obtained my Associate of Arts Degree from Mount San Antonio
College. While I was in college, I had the privilege of working with children and their
families. It was then, that my interest for teaching began. I truly enjoyed sharing
knowledge with others and decided to enter the teaching profession. I received a
Teaching Credential and Bachelor’s degree from University of La Verne.
My professional teaching endeavors in the education field began when I started
teaching in 2000. I consider my professional experience in education to be well
rounded. I have vast experience as a teacher working with various age groups and
grade levels. My knowledge and experience in the education field became more refined
when I decided to return to school and obtain an Administrative Services Credential
from the University of La Verne.
I now proudly serve as an Assistant Principal at David G. Millen Intermediate
School, where I hope to continue to make a positive impact in students' academic
achievements and attainment to a life long love for learning.
