 Mr. Esteban Lizarraga, Principal

Hi, my name is Esteban Lizarraga and I’m excited to be a part of the team at Tomas Rivera MS as principal. My seven years of teaching began, in the Val Verde USD, as an impact (intervention) teacher at the elementary level and then taught social studies at the middle and high school level. I became an assistant principal, in the Jurupa USD, at a middle school and then a principal at an elementary school. I returned to the Val Verde USD team as an assistant principal at Citrus Hill High School. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in History at California State University of Fullerton, my teaching credential at Chapman University, and my Masters of Arts degree in Educational Leadership at California State University of San Bernardino. I am blessed to be married to my amazing wife Jacquelyn and father to our three wonderful sons, Micah, Oliver, and Gideon. I am honored to be a part of a learning community at Tomas Rivera that is committed to establishing a school culture which recognizes no limitations in the achievement and success of each student.

Ms. Zamora, Assistant Principal

Hello, my name is Rubi Zamora and I am the new Assistant Principal. I have been in education for over 20 years. I served as a teacher at Tomas Rivera Middle School for 10 years as a 6th grade Language Arts/ELD and Social Studies teacher. I was also the Instructional Coach for Tomas Rivera. I currently hold a Masters in Administration and Supervision and in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in ELD. I have a 23-year-old son who is going to school to become a counselor. I feel honored and privileged to work at a school with a dedicated staff who support all students in achieving success.


Mrs. Evans, Instructional Coach

I am honored to have a new position at Tomas Rivera Middle School as the Instructional Coach. I have served as an 8th grade Language Arts/ELD teacher at Tomas for seven years, and as department chair for the last five. Currently, I am also continuing to work as our school's AVID Excel Coordinator. I received my Bachelor's degree and teaching credential at San Diego State University. My active and determined one-year-old daughter keeps me busy at home. I look forward to working with all of our amazing teachers at Tomas.
