Greetings! My name is Melissa Dela-Xiong, and I am the teacher librarian at La Quinta High School. I am thrilled to be back on the very same campus from which I graduated. Before I returned to my alma mater at the beginning of 2013, I worked at Santiago High School (GGUSD) for many years.
As a teacher librarian, I enjoy working with all of our students, staff members, and community members in order to address the literary and technological needs at our school site. If you ever have any questions, concerns, suggestions, etc., please do not hesitate to e-mail me at
In terms of my educational background, I possess a Bachelor's Degree in Child Development/Family Studies, a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, and a Preliminary Administrative Services Credential from California State University Long Beach, as well as a Master's Degree in Library and Information Science and a Library Media Services Credential from San Jose State University.
In my spare time, I enjoy going on adventures with my daughter, attending various cultural events, traveling, dancing, reading (of course!), cooking, and trying new restaurants. I especially enjoy Vietnamese, Indian, Thai, Mexican and Japanese foods.
I am looking forward to working with you!
