  • On behalf of the Temecula Middle School Bobcat staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2022-23 school year.  Our motto for the year, “Grit and Grace”, was chosen to remind our students that it’s their resilience and determination that we admire.  In addition, when we show grace for others, it creates a kinder school, a better learning environment and a community feeling.  It feels great to be back to “normal” this year, and I know that our whole staff is looking forward to a terrific 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!
