With principals Gina Silveira and Melissa Becker
Melissa Becker, Principal at Meadow Elementary School, received the Petaluma Community Award for Excellence in Education in May 2014 for her charismatic leadership. She created the first elementary makerspace in Northern CA for students and strives to provide a progressive learning environment for all children.
Gina Silveira is an innovative administrator with 16 years of classroom experience and three years in administration. Last summer she ran a maker camp for students and was inspired to continue to infuse making and engineering throughout the elementary curriculum.
