Assistant Principal

Melinda Tavernier

I've been in education for 30 years. During that time, I've taught almost every grade level as well as undergraduates and graduates. I homeschool my children for 10 years until I became a charter school developer in 2010. I enjoy working in the charter school environment. I was a part of the original committee that started EVA in 2016. I received my Educational Specialist degree in Instructional Technology in 2018. I'm excited to move to a full time position with the school and use my experience and expertise to help the EVA family grow!
