Welcome to Gardner Middle School home of the Grizzlies!!! I have worked for the Temecula Valley Unified School District for the last nine years. I had the pleasure to have worked at Chaparral High School as a Counselor and Assistant Principal for the last eight years and it has been very rewarding to return back to middle school this year. Prior to coming to Temecula I lived and worked in San Diego. I attended San Diego State University where I received a Bachelor's degree in psychology and I also earned a Master's degree in Counseling as well as an Administrative Credential from National University. I enjoy education personally and I'm a believer that everyone can achieve. I have taught courses at Mt. San Jacinto Community College and have been a Counselor and Assistant Principal at both middle and high schools throughout my career. I feel blessed to be part of the Grizzly family and I look forward to hopefully meeting you sometime soon.
