Principal's Message



It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself as the new Principal of Rancho Viejo Middle School. I have been part of the Hemet USD Family since October 2018 as an Assistant Principal at the high school level.  I have been in education for 26 years. My career experiences include teaching Mathematics and  administration at the  high school and middle school level. I am privileged to have the opportunity to join the team at Rancho Viejo Middle School and serve the staff, students, and community. I look forward to getting this school year started and building a strong community. 

Personally, I have been married for 25 years and my wife and I are blessed with 6 children. Five of our children are grown and the youngest is a senior in high school. The majority of my personal time is spent with family and friends enjoying travel and various types of outings.

It is my goal to support the great work already happening at the school. The commitment of the Rancho Viejo staff is to Embrace, Educate and Empower every student. Our goal is to create an environment that supports every learner to succeed in an  instructional program that will help them succeed at Rancho Viejo and beyond. I am filled with enthusiasm to work with our Rancho Viejo students.  The ability to read, write and speak academically are essential skills required for any scholar to become empowered. And, it is imperative for students to be present to receive benefits of an education. So, two areas of focus for this year will continue to be improving literacy and attendance for students. 

I look forward to serving students, parents, staff and the community to assure our scholars are successful. I have an open-door policy.  Please do not hesitate to contact me via email, phone call, or personal appointment.  I am eager to hear your thoughts and input about all facets of our school community.  

I look forward to a successful school year!
