Mr. Chris Hunter

Hello and Welcome!  

This will by my 21st year teaching in TVUSD. I have taught middle school for 20 of those years.  I was born and raised in Northern Indiana.  I moved shortly after college to the wonderful climate of San Diego in 1999.  I then moved to Temecula in 2000.  I have four children, currently the ages are 21, 16, 6, and 4.  My family and I live in the area and love our community.  We enjoy traveling, camping, and playing sports. 

I am looking forward to working with you as we take a journey into the world of computer applications.

If you have any questions, concerns, or just comments, please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail or give me a call (e-mail is probably faster.)
