Mrs. Jennifer Prato

Originally from the Central Coast, I still consider myself a fish out of water living in Southern California, though I have lived here more than half my life now.  Initially I relocated to attend SDSU, where I earned both my BA and my teaching credential. I began my teaching career as a substiute teacher in San Diego Unified, and after casting a wide net for a full time position, was hired to teach 6th grade in Westalke Village.  After one year in Westlake Village, I returned to the San Diego area and began teaching at a private school in La Mesa.  Thanks to the affordable cost of living in Temecula, I found my way to Temecula Middle School and have been teaching ELA here since 2002.  Since then I have continued my education, earning a GATE certificate from Cal State Fullerton and my master's degree from Concordia University, Irvine.

My husband and I are busy raising three amazing kids  - who also attend school in TVUSD - and chasing after our giant English Mastiff and teeny tiny Chihuahua. It's never a dull moment at the Prato house!
