Principal and AP BIO

Bill Alpert, Principal

 I’m currently beginning my eleventh year at Coyote Creek and my third as principal. Before my tenure at Coyote Creek I worked as a Teacher on Special Assignment (TSA) at Holbrook Elementary in Concord, CA. At Holbrook I taught several intervention classes to third, fourth, and fifth graders, set up a noon-league sports program, and did various administrative duties. Prior to my TSA position, I was a first and third grade classroom teacher for ten years at Mountain View Elementary in Concord, CA. I was originally born in Pittsburgh, PA, and resided there until five years of age. My family moved to Atlanta, GA where I attended kindergarten through third grade. In fourth grade we moved to Walnut Creek, CA, and I have lived in Northern California ever since. I attended Walnut Acres Elementary, Foothill Intermediate, and Northgate High School. I furthered my education at UC Davis and graduated with a BA in History in 1991. I went back to school to obtain my teaching credential at Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village, NV, and began teaching in 1996. My administrative certification was done through Cal State, East Bay. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my two children, Wesley (15) and Ella (13), and my cat, Kevin. I am an avid snowboarder, play both indoor and outdoor soccer, and enjoy reading, movies, music, eating sushi and Mexican food, paddleboarding, and watching the Pittsburgh Steelers and US Soccer when I have the time.

Leona Lam, Assistant Principal

I began working in education in 2003 as an elementary teacher and have since worked with K-12 students as both a teacher and an assistant principal. I completed my undergraduate work at U.C. San Diego, and continued my graduate studies at both San Diego State and Cal State East Bay. I was born and raised in the Bay Area and in my spare time I enjoy baking, sewing, and spending time with my family. I’m happy to be a part of the Coyote Creek community and look forward to an exciting school year!
