Principal - Rob Sousa
Welcome to Day Middle School. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be the educational leader of this outstanding school. So that you may know a little about your child's principal, I have included a short bio. I grew up in San Diego, and was slated to follow in my grandfather’s and father's footsteps by becoming a commercial tuna fisherman. While attending college at the University of San Diego, where I earned my BA in English, I served in a high school youth program and discovered that my passion was to be involved with kids. After college, I moved to Riverside County in 1989 and began teaching seventh and eighth grade English in Moreno Valley. In 1992, I earned my MA in Education Administration from Azusa Pacific University. In addition to teaching, I coached a variety of sports at various levels. I was hired in the Temecula Valley Unified School District in 1997 as the Assistant Principal at Vail Ranch Middle School. In 2002, I moved to Temecula Middle School and served as Principal until 2017. I have been Principal at Day Middle School since the 2017-18 school year, and I desire to continually build strong relationships with the school community. My wife and I have been married since 1989, and we have two adult children. In my free time, I regularly enjoy playing racquetball, golf and working out. In addition to work and play, I delight in serving on the mission field in Uganda, Africa; I have travelled there every other year since 2008. I look forward to working with you in the coming school year.
