Mrs. Bridget McDermott

I have been teaching in the Temecula Valley School District for nineteen years. The past sixteen years have been here at Margarita Middle School.  I consider myself very fortunate to work with the MMS Staff and students who make up my family away from home.

Speaking of home and family, my husband, Jeff, and I are proud dog parents to two spoiled standard poodles, Stanley and Iris.  We also have two daughters, Sheena 37 and Erin 34, who went to Margarita Middle School.  We have three granddaughters and one grandson. My daughters would give me a hard time for listing my dogs first, but it is what it is.   :)

 My previous teaching experience includes 6th and 7th grade Language Arts , Reading Workshop, 6th grade Math, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Social Studies, Yearbook Advisor, and ASB.

Teaching has been an incredible experience for me and not in a million years would I have ever thought I would be forced to teach on-line.   This will be an experience that I know my students, parents, and I will turn into another incredible journey we will take together.   I love middle school aged kids and find that I learn as much from them as they do from me - and now with technology, this will be truer than ever.
