Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Melissa Maisen
Things have come full circle! I began my teaching career as a student teacher at Stevens Creek, and have since worn many hats for Cupertino Union School District. The first 8 years were spent as a teacher, BTSA coach, and master teacher. I also spent a year as the Teacher on Special Assignment, before becoming an Assistant Principal in the 2016-2017 school year. I am proud to be part of Stevens Creek's community once again. The constant over the years has been the dedicated families, top-notch staff, and amazing students. As an instructional leader, I feel the best work comes when there are opportunities for collaboration, voice of all stakeholders, and a team mentality looking out for the best interest of students.
On a personal level, I grew up in the bay area, and managed to attend schools in the area as well. I earned my B.A. in Legal Studies from UC Berkeley, my teaching credential from Santa Clara University, and my M.A. in Educational Administration with an emphasis in technology from San Jose State University. I met my husband in college at Cal, and we have two sweet, energetic boys. We love spending time outdoors and supporting the local sports teams.
