On behalf of the Temecula Middle School Bobcat staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. We are already off to a great start! This year, the TMS faculty and staff are focused on building a positive school climate where all of our students feel connected, supported and valued. By the end of this year, our students will certainly have a deep understanding of our school’s mission: that all students learn with PRIDE (Participation, Responsibility, Integrity, Determination and Effort). TMS teachers are working to instill these characteristics in each of our students, and we will recognize them and celebrate their success along the way.
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. This is my second year at TMS. When I have free time, I like to spend the day barbecuing, reading, playing sports, and catching a UCLA football or basketball game.
