Head of School/
Melania Gutierrez ~ "Ms. G"
Service in Education has been my life’s calling especially here at ACS. My teaching experience was 6-12 grade sciences in Katy ISD and Brazosport ISD and 4th grade math at ACS. I taught for 13 years before serving as an Assistant Principal for 5 years. I have spent 15 years as an Elementary Principal which accounts for 33 years in education.
I graduated from Brazosport High School and received my B.S. from Texas A&M. Gig Em! I earned my Master’s degree from University of Houston-Victoria and have work toward my Doctorate from American College of Education. I am a 4th generation educator!
I accepted Christ at an early age and believe Christ died for our sins so we can serve him and in turn serve others . I remember kneeling with my pastor and praying for Jesus to be my lord and savior. God has directed my path and led me to ACS. My greatest hope is that God is glorified through my words and actions. I praise God for the many blessings he has provided in my life. I was raised Southern Baptist but currently attend Gulf Prairie Presbyterian Church. My prayer is for God’s light to shine through me each and every day.
My family blessings include three daughters. Kaley is a Jr. High Math teacher in San Antonio. She earned her Master’s Degree from UTSA and plans to be in Administration some day. Amber is a graduate student at Texas Tech and will graduate with her Master’s Degree in May. She will work as a Speech Pathologist. Alexis is a 3rd generation Brazosport HS student. She is a junior and serves as the FFA Vice President. She is currently enrolled in Dual Credit courses at Brazosport College. She plans to enter the nursing field.
But those who hope in the Lord shall renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
I am so excited to join the Angleton Christian School family this year. I will be teaching 4th grade Science and Bible and 5th grade Science. I have been an educator for 32 years and have had the privilege of teaching elementary students for 20 years. I retired in 2017 and have missed teaching children. I feel God has called me to teach at ACS and I am grateful for the opportunity. I have been married to my husband Karl for 35 years. He is an Angletonian and therefore, we have lived and raised our daughters here. I am a proud Galveston B.O.I. (born on the island). A claim to fame, that’s only important to islanders. Karl is also a retired teacher, and substitutes at ACS.We have two daughters: Ashley is a high school teacher at Columbia High School and Natalie is a first grade teacher at O.M. Roberts in Brazosport ISD.
God (and ACS administrators) have provided me the opportunity to co-teach with an awesome young woman, Jennifer Liles. Mrs. Liles has substituted at ACS and the children and staff love her! I have worked with her for a week and I know we are a match made in heaven.
