Welcome back, Blue Jays, to another wonderful year of learning.  I am Melissa Belle Gutierrez the proud principal of Villa Nueva Elementary.  This 2023-2024 school year marks my 8th year as the principal of this wonderful school and working with the most amazing students, parents, and community.


Prior to Villa Nueva Elementary, I served as the Dean of Instruction at Veterans Memorial Early College High School for 4 years and as an Assistant Principal at Homer Hanna High School for 8 years.  My career in education started as a teacher at A.X. Benavides for 5 years.  I have proudly served in education at BISD for 24 years.


I am ready to embark on another fabulous adventure through learning!  Let's have a great school year!
