Greetings and Welcome to our North East STEM Academy Community!
My name is Georgina Castilleja and I am honored to have the opportunity to be founding principal of North East STEM Academy and to serve its Community. I believe that together we can reach great heights and empower our students to be successful and competitive in this ever-changing society.
I was born in Monterrey, Mexico and came to the US at a young age. My role in education started as office staff and teacher assistant. I then taught middle and high school and advanced to instructional leadership roles within the district office including curriculum and instructional specialist. After a tenure coaching and training teachers district-wide as a Teacher Development Specialist Manager, I transitioned to the role of Dean of Instruction, where I felt I could have a more direct impact in the life of students. I later became a middle school principal, trusting that great individuals, together, can impact lives, communities, and futures. I am currently embarking the journey of a founding principal, starting our new North East STEM Academy that opened August 2021! My overarching goal is to create a culture of leaders, thinkers and problem solvers, and my mission is to help shape students academically, socially, and emotionally, into great human beings.
Join me on this journey!
