  • On behalf of the Temecula Middle School Bobcat staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. We are already off to a great start! Our staff chose “Good-Better-Best, never let it rest, until your good is better and your better is best” as our school motto this year. I think it’s a fitting motto because middle school is a place where students begin to self evaluate, set goals for themselves, and make more and more decisions that impact their future. We think it sets a great tone for the year.  

    A little about me: I grew up in Lakewood, California, and attended UCLA after graduating from high school. I taught in Los Angeles for eight years before moving to Margarita Middle School in Temecula in 2006.  After teaching at MMS for a few years, I moved to Chaparral High School where I was a math teacher, wrestling coach, athletic director and an assistant principal. I joined the TMS staff as principal in 2017. When I have free time, I like to spend the day barbecuing, reading, playing sports, and catching a UCLA football or basketball game. 

    Go Bobcats!
