    Asst. Principal Melinda Schott - Juniors

    The 2019-2020 school year marks my 28th year as an educator.  This school year will be my eleventh year at Carroll Senior High School as an Assistant Principal.  I am very excited to continue to work with such a dedicated staff, hardworking students, supportive parents, and caring community.

    I was born and raised in Irving, Texas, where I began my teaching career as a 7th grade math teacher.  After teaching for six years, I decided to pursue a career in administration.  I continued my education from University of North Texas and received a Master of Education.  But, I bleed maroon!  I’m a true Aggie!  Texas A&M is where I received my Bachelor of Science.  GIG’EM!

    When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children.  My kiddos keep me busy:  my son Michael will be a sophomore at UTPB majoring in Geology; my daughter Makenzie will be a senior at Flower Mound High School and plays on the Varsity Basketball Team; and last but not least, my daughter Madison will be a junior at Flower Mound High School and plays on the Varsity Soccer Team.

    I feel honored to be an Assistant Principal at Carroll Senior High School.  I look forward to all of the new challenges we will face together and to all the successes we will achieve together.  I invite you to contact me with any questions or concerns anytime at 817-949-5803 or email.
