Hello! My name is Jeremiah Montez and I’m honored to be the Interim Principal and Superintendent at HFA:The Alameda School. I’m happy to say that I have been with the The Alameda School since it start in 2009. In those years my roles have changed, but my commitment to providing students with a fair and safe environment has not.
I am a native to the Southside of San Antonio and a proud graduate of Dillard McCollum High School. I attended Palo Alto College where I then transferred to Southwestern Assemblies of God University (a small private university in the great city of Waxahachie, TX) where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Counseling Psychology. My career began in a small charter school in the neighborhood of Oak Cliff in Dallas, TX. After getting homesick, I decided to move back to San Antonio to continue my career in Education. During that time I met my beautiful wife and now have two handsome sons who make life exciting and joyful. Wanting to be a good role model for my children and students, I decided to return to school to earn my Master’s degree in Educational Administration.
HFA has given me opportunities to travel across the country, from Rhode Island to visit phenomenal Art Colleges to San Francisco to train with great thinkers of the Stanford d.school. Thinking back, I didn’t plan for education to be my life’s work, yet here I am 15 years later — and I wouldn’t change a single thing!
