Mesa Linda Middle School


Greetings, Mesa Linda Families & Community Members!


Welcome to the 2022 – 2023 school year! It is going to be an exciting year indeed! I am embarking on my 17th year as an educational leader, my 24 year in education, and my first full year as your principal here at Mesa Linda Middle School. I am happy to have spent the last 6 weeks of the previous school year as your leader. I was able to observe the culture, academic practices, and the overall tone of the school. This has helped me get laser focused on the needs of students and staff for this year.

We have two major focus areas this year; the first is creating a safe, positive, and collaborative culture – this is for students and staff. The second focus is having high academic and ethical standards for every child and every adult! I know for a fact that at Mesa Linda Middle School we are creating future doctors, lawyers, pilots, politicians, veterinarians, educators, college professors, astronauts, botanists, biologists, and every other career path imaginable; we can only be successful if we work as a team (collaborative), and if we have high expectations for all.

After visiting the Ron Clark Academy this summer, a team of 10 Mesa Linda educators will endeavor to slowly initiate some of the awesome strategies that were effective for a student population quite similar to ours! This year you may hear your child refer to the Team or House that they belong to. This is part of our collaborative efforts for students to establish a strong connection to education, and create a lasting bond with a group of students and teachers. These houses and teams are often referenced by colors and/or names, and there is a positive principle attatched to them as well!

 For 6th graders you may hear talk of The Isibindi House whose color is green and represent courage, The Amistad House whose color is red and represent friendship, The Altruismo House whose color is black and represent giving, and The Reveur House whose color is blue and represent Dreams.

We want to ignite in our students the audacity to dream big, to have the courage to follow those dreams, to make lasting friendships along the way, and to have a heart of giving, to ensure those around us have what they need.

We understand that change is tough; but we are committed to our focus of working collaboratively and having high expectations for all stakeholders. We look forward to seeing you at the events at Mesa Linda Middle School this School Year.


Blessings & Hope,

Dr. Monique Kammer,
