CFISD names principal for Black Elementary
May 3, 2010 — Melissa LeDoux, an assistant principal at Moore Elementary School, was named the new principal at Black Elementary School for 2010-2011. LeDoux replaces Lillian Chastain, who will retire in June.
LeDoux has served 20 years in education, 16 of which were spent in CFISD. She began her career in 1990, teaching at a Louisiana elementary school before coming to Texas in 1992 and teaching in Abilene ISD. LeDoux soon arrived in CFISD as a teacher at Metcalf Elementary School and later transferred to Emmott Elementary School. She then served as an instructional specialist at Reed Elementary for three years, and was promoted to her current position at Moore, where she has served for the last five years.
LeDoux received a Bachelor of Science from the University of Arkansas and a Master of Education from Sam Houston State University. She holds Elementary Self-Contained (1-8) and Principal (EC-12) certifications.
“It is such an honor to be selected as the next principal of Black Elementary,” LeDoux said. “Being a part of Cypress-Fairbanks ISD for the last 16 years has been an amazing experience as I have worked with so many talented leaders who have inspired and mentored me along my journey. I am so excited to become a Bearkat and serve such an amazing student body, staff and community as we carry on the tradition of academic excellence.”
