Principal's Message





Welcome Back Hosler families to the 2019-2020 school year. Let me begin by saying how privileged I feel to be serving the community of Lynwood as the Principal of Hosler Middle School, home of the lions!  I am eager to begin the awesome work of building strong relationships with our students, parents, and staff to ensure that we provide a safe, conducive learning environment for all students.


For over 20 years, I have dedicated my life to the field of education because I believe that a quality education can change the trajectory of a student’s life. I firmly believe that if provided the opportunity and the appropriate support, all students can learn and reach their full potential! My passion is fueled by my own personal experiences as a first generation college student, and that of many students who demonstrated to me through the years that all they needed was an opportunity and someone to believe in them.


Hosler Middle School is committed to providing our students with instruction, programs, and activities that will help prepare them for the rigor of high school and beyond.  We also understand that in order for our students to be academically successful, their social-emotional needs must be meet as well.

Hosler will focus on developing innovative thinkers who can effectively communicate, collaborate and problem solve. Our dedicated staff meets regularly throughout the year to collaborate on instruction and programming to better meet the needs of all students.   


Using a holistic approach, Hosler Middle School is committed to helping develop and guide all our students to make good decisions and choices that will have a positive impact on their educational careers as well as their future.  We will encourage our students to practice our school’s core values: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe as a way to develop people of good character: who can inspire and lead.


The middle school years are a critical and transitional time for students.  Today’s students are often faced with a multitude of challenges that often extend beyond the reach of school, but can have immediate impact on our student’s educational achievement. This is why communication and collaboration between our parents, staff and students is key! If there should ever be a concern please do not hesitate to reach out to our teachers, staff or administration. Together we can begin to find solutions that can ensure our students social-emotional needs are meet and they stay on track towards meeting their educational goals.
