Mrs. Debra Tarantino

Welcome! My name is Debbie Tarantino and I have enjoyed living in our picturesque town of Temecula for the past 25 years. I love to spend as much time as I can with my family in the great outdoors hiking in the mountains, biking in the hills, and skiing the lakes in summer or snow-capped mountains in the winter.

I attended Azusa Pacific University where I earned my Bachelors degree in Human Development with an emphasis in English, my Multiple Subject teaching credential, and my Master's degree in Education. This is my thirteenth year teaching in the Temecula Unified School District. Previously, I taught 1st and 2nd grade at Ysabel Barnett and 5th grade at Temecula Luiseno. I am excited to once again teach 6th grade language arts at Margarita Middle School. What I am looking forward to most is working with such wonderful students and the amazing team of teachers here at Margarita Middle School.
