All About Dr. Montgomery

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

Here is a little about myself:

I taught for several years prior to becoming an administrator and worked in the Saddleback Valley Unified School District for over twenty years. 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. Recently, I finished my doctorate in Organizational Leadership from Brandman University.

My daughter graduated from Boise State in the area of Communications/Public Relations. She now works in  for Boise State and my son completed his degree from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada in the area of environmental science/'forestry. I am 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
