Steven Melis was born in Greece, but grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. After studying English at Williams College and Oxford University, he lived in New York City, working in publishing and then completing a year of City Year at PS 112 in Queens. After realizing that education is his calling, he joined Teach for America and taught English and Theater at several schools: 4 years at De Anza High School in Richmond, CA, and 1 year at Noble Street College Prep in Chicago, IL. In his free time, Mr. Melis enjoys singing in loud bands, thinking about video games, and being sore from CrossFit. He is excited to join a creative and talented team that can push students to accomplish great things.
