• 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.
