Welcome families and members of the Novato Community! My name is Jeff Wallace, and I am proud to serve as the principal of Sinaloa Middle School for the 2019-2020 school year. I am excited to be back in Novato Unified, where I started my career in Education as a teacher at both Nexus Academy and then Novato High School. I taught High School Math at NHS for 7 years, and during that time I grew to love the students and parents in this community. In addition to my time teaching, I also served as Athletic Director, and Varsity Boys/Girls Soccer coach. I have enjoyed every minute of my career with NUSD, and I am very grateful for this opportunity!
I believe that children learn best when they feel safe, cared for, and supported. Every child is different, and every child can be successful if we look at their strengths, and find ways to make learning meaningful to them. As a father of three young children myself, I fully understand that the learning needs of each individual are unique, and we will do everything possible to try and reach each and every child effectively.
My doors are always open, feel free to meet with me any time if you have any questions, concerns, or just want to learn more about Sinaloa. I look forward to working with all of you, and with your students!
Set in the rolling hills of Novato, Sinaloa Middle boasts a beautiful campus with spectacular views of nature, a vibrant campus, and welcoming staff. We hope you’ll take the time to visit our community and see everything that Sinaloa Middle has to offer!
