Ms. Sammie Almeida
Welcome DMS students and families! I am so excited for my first year here at DMS! Before coming to DMS, I worked at Temecula Preparatory School - a charter within TVUSD. During my time there, I taught middle and high school English, Speech/Debate, Drama and Journalism. Here at DMS I'll be teaching 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts (ELA) as an LCAP Language Arts Specialist.
On a personal note, I grew up in the area, so I love getting to be a part of this beautiful community as an adult as well. In my free time, I love to both write and listen to music, exercise, attend theater, spend time with friends/family (especially my fiance, Josh!), and, of course, read for pleasure. I'm a mystery and thriller fanatic, so some of my favorite authors include (but are certainly not limited to): Agatha Christie, Liane Moriarty, Bethany Blake, S.J. Watson, William Landay, Ruth Ware, B.A. Paris, and A.J. Finn.
Additional class information can be found in the individual tabs. Email is the best way to reach me.
Have a great 2019/2020 school year, everyone!
