Welcome to Bella Vista Middle School! I am excited and honored to be part of this incredible school that is dedicated to serving its students. Prior to coming to BVMS, I served for seven years as the principal at James L. Day Middle School here in TVUSD, and I served for four years as an Assistant Principal at various sites that include Temecula Valley High School, Margarita Middle School, and James L. Day Middle School. Before being a school administrator, I served for eight year as a middle school teacher in Menifee Union School District. I taught Math, Science, and Language Arts.
My educational background includes attending California State University San Marcos where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree and a teaching credential. After several years of teaching, I earned an administrative credential and a Master’s degree at California State University San Bernardino in Educational Administration.
I grew up in Chicago, IL. My favorite and most memorable years of growing up were in middle school. I was involved in many activities from gymnastics, cheerleading, track and field, and dance. I moved to California in the 90’s and lived in San Diego, Menifee, and now Temecula. My husband and I live in Temecula with our daughter and two dogs. My daughter is a college graduate from California State University San Marcos, and she attended high school in TVUSD.
Bella Vista Middle School has an outstanding team and staff that supports students. I encourage parents to check your child’s grades regularly using Infinite Campus, check our school and teachers’ websites, and attend our school events. I look forward to supporting and serving students, parents, and staff at BVMS for the 2017-2018 school year! Have a great year!
