Tina Miller

Tina Miller, Principal

Welcome to Bella Vista Middle School!  I am excited and honored to be part of this incredible school that is dedicated to serving its students. Prior to coming to BVMS, I served for seven years as the principal at James L. Day Middle School here in TVUSD, and I served for four years as an Assistant Principal at various sites that include Temecula Valley High School, Margarita Middle School, and James L. Day Middle School.  Before being a school administrator, I served for eight year as a middle school teacher in Menifee Union School District.  I taught Math, Science, and Language Arts.

My educational background includes attending California State University San Marcos where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree and a teaching credential.  After several years of teaching, I earned an administrative credential and a Master’s degree at California State University San Bernardino in Educational Administration.

I grew up in Chicago, IL. My favorite and most memorable years of growing up were in middle school. I was involved in many activities from gymnastics, cheerleading, track and field, and dance. I moved to California in the 90’s and lived in San Diego, Menifee, and now Temecula.  My husband and I live in Temecula with our daughter and two dogs.  My daughter is a college graduate from California State University San Marcos, and she attended high school in TVUSD. 

Bella Vista Middle School has an outstanding team and staff that supports students. I encourage parents to check your child’s grades regularly using Infinite Campus, check our school and teachers’ websites, and attend our school events. I look forward to supporting and serving students, parents, and staff at BVMS for the 2017-2018 school year! Have a great year!

Jeanine Wulfenstein, Assistant Principal

I’m excited to be joining the outstanding administration, teachers and staff of Bella Vista Middle School as the new Assistant Principal! I have been a middle school educator for 14 years. I am coming to Bella Vista from Gardner Middle School, where I was on staff for the past 8 years. Prior to that, I taught at Wells Middle School in Dublin, California and Oak Middle School in Los Alamitos, California. I hold a B.A. in Biological Sciences from the University of California, Santa Barbara, a M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction from the California State University, East Bay, and also hold an Administrative Credential. In 2013, I received the honor of being recognized as the TVUSD Middle School Teacher of the Year. Outside of our local community, I am also actively involved at the state level and was appointed by the California State Board of Education to serve on the Science Curriculum and Framework Committee in Sacramento. I enjoy working to serve students, across our state to ensure a guaranteed rigorous curriculum for all students. I am also an active member of the Temecula community. I have 4 school aged children and love being a parent. As a parent, I understand the importance of ensuring that school is a place where students love learning, develop positive relationships with peers and staff, feel connected, and ultimately achieve their full potential. Bella Vista is exactly this type of environment! When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. My hobbies include swimming, reading, attending sporting events, and gardening. I’m looking forward to getting to know you. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns that may arise. I’m looking forward to a great year! Thank you for your support!
