Welcome new and returning Pinacate Pumas to the 2017-2018 school year!
I am so excited to be back at Pinacate Middle School. I started in the Perris Union High School District as a teacher at Pinacate 15 years ago. In the 2007-08 school year I returned to PMS as Assistant Principal. This is my third time serving students and parents at PMS, and look forward to continuing to support all of the wonderful things happening at Pinacate. I have also served as a teacher and school administrator at various other schools as well, including Perris Lake High School, Perris High School, The Academy, and the Learning Skills Center.
Pinacate has always held a special place in my heart. I truly believe that Pinacate has the biggest impact on students’ future success. The dedicated, caring staff strive to meet the needs of all students. As administrator over 7th Grade students, I will work diligently to ensure students experience a positive first exposure to middle school, are treated fairly in all situations, and build the skills necessary to be successful in 8th Grade and beyond.
Pinacate Middle School has developed many academic and extracurricular programs over the past several years to better ensure that our kids have the best experience possible during our two years together that prepares them for success in high school and beyond. From our sports programs and after school clubs to our campus-wide AVID program and technology classes, Pinacate has become a truly state of the art campus serving the needs of our wonderful kids and families.
I very much look forward to working with all of our students, families, and staff throughout another great year at Pinacate. My door is always open for questions, concerns, or feedback and I welcome your input and participation.
