Melissa Goddin, Principal

"Hello McNair Upper Family! It is both an honor and a privilege to serve as your proud principal! This is my 17th year with Fairfax County Public Schools; where I have served as both a classroom teacher at Hunters Woods ES and McNair ES. I began my administrative journey 10 years ago as Assistant Principal of Lake Anne ES. This is my 7th year as principal of the McNair community; where I served as principal of McNair ES for 6 years before being named principal of McNair Upper ES this past spring.  I am thrilled for the adventure that awaits us in opening a new school together; including  establishing new school-wide traditions and celebrating the successes of our Mustangs! 

I live in Leesburg with my husband, Robert, and Parker, our son, who will be in 2nd grade this upcoming school year. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cooking, shopping, and being outdoors. It is rare to see me without a Starbucks coffee in my hand. I love a good vanilla latte-hot or cold!"

Mike Astudillo, Assistant Principal

"Hello McNair Upper Mustangs! I am excited to serve as your Assistant Principal for the 2020-2021 school year! I have been with Fairfax County Public Schools for 17 years where I have served as a classroom teacher, assistant director of student activities and assistant principal at both the High School and Elementary School levels. This is my 3rd year as an assistant principal with the McNair community and I can’t wait to be a part of the brand new opening of this great school! 

I live in Loudoun County with my wife Molly, our two daughters Samantha, and Katelyn, and we are expecting one more kiddo in November  :)  When I’m not working, I enjoy playing the guitar and drums, exercising, working around the house, and being the best dad I can be. I also am a Harley Davidson enthusiast and the proud owner of a 2018 Harley Davidson Fatboy Softail motorcycle."
