Deming 2017 Melanie Alfaro portrait

Melanie Alfaro enjoys a quiet moment in her classroom after her surprise Milken Educator Award notification. Alfaro is a leader in the district: She mentors teachers, leads professional development, sits on the math pacing guides and superintendent’s advisory committees, and was instrumental in bringing former New Mexico Secretary of Education Hanna Skandera to Deming to talk about the status of education in the state. Alfaro has advocated strongly in favor of the district’s sometimes-controversial policy of busing U.S. citizen children living across the nearby Mexican border into Deming schools. In 2016 she was selected to join the New Mexico Teacher Leader Network.
