All About Mrs. Montgomery

Thank you for visiting the Lomarena website. This school is a hidden gem in Mission Viejo. The students, staff, families, and community of Lomarena make this a very special place.

Here is a little about myself:

I taught for almost nineteen years prior to becoming an administrator. This will be my nineteenth year with the Saddleback Valley Unified School District. I taught third, fourth, fifth and sixth grades in SVUSD. I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Alberta in Canada. This is where I received a Bachelor of Education Degree in Elementary Education. Next I received my Masters of Educational Administration degree from Cal State Fullerton. This year I am in the second year of my Doctorate in Organizational Leadership.

My daughter graduated from Boise State in the area of Communications/Public Relations. She now works in Seattle for Boise State. My son is a junior at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. I am also a huge animal lover. We share our home with two rescue dogs named Hershey and Lily. I love to spend time with my wonderful husband walking on the beach.

I have been very fortunate to have worked with many exceptional leaders in my career.

I love to learn new things and am a life long learner. I love to have fun, but always want excellent learning to take place. I truly believe that if children are in a place they are excited to come to each day they will learn to their optimal potential.

I have two rules to live by:

Work Hard and Be Nice
