Ms. Lyrla

Welcome to my website!  I currently teach 8th Language Arts and 7th AVID.  I have been teaching in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District since 2002 with 2 years at MVHS and the past 18 years at TMS.  During the past 20 years, I have coached JV swimming at MVHS, cheerleading at TMS, and cheerleading at MMHS.  Since 2012, I have been the TMS Odyssey of the Mind Advisor and this will be my third year as the TMS AVID Coordinator.  Additionally, I have been a member of several district committees including Literacy Leaders, the District Writing Committee, the District Curriculum Work Team, and the District Piloting Committee.

I strongly believe that a safe learning environment is the key to student success, and I make sure to learn all my students' stories, so I know their perspectives.  I share my passion and love for reading and writing with every student I meet, and I hope to inspire in them a love for learning and success.   

Dear Students,

I believe in you.

I trust in you.

You are listened to.

You are cared for.

You are important.

You will succeed.

Love, Ms. Lyrla
