Message from our Principal

Dear Walter Colton Middle School Families,
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! It is an exciting time at Walter Colton Middle School and I am pleased to partner with you, your child, and our staff to provide a wonderful experience at WCMS this year.
While I am new to Walter Colton, I have a rich history at the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District. I am a seasoned administrator, and recently served as assistant principal of Seaside High School, where I played a critical role in helping to turn the high school around both academically and culturally. Prior to SHS, I was an academic coach in the Monterey learning community at Monterey High and Walter Colton, and have also taught in the district.
It is a great honor to lead Walter Colton and serve our students, families and staff. I am a collaborator, listener, and will hold high expectations for students and staff to ensure academic success for your child.
I look forward to hosting a meet and greet with the community as the opening of school nears and look forward to meeting and engaging with you and your student.
My door is always open to you. Feel free to contact our office at (831) 649-1951 or email me at
