Mrs. Donna Lione
I am honored to serve as the Principal at Temecula Valley High School for the 23/24 academic year. Coming back to TVHS after serving as the Assistant Principal 8 years ago has been a wonderful transition in my educational career. I have been with TVUSD since 2001 and have taught at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. I have served the students and teachers of TVUSD as a elementary technology coach, middle & high school district math/science coach, and for the last 7 years have served as a Director of Student Welfare & Success at the District Office.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science & Criminal Justice from Southeast Missouri State. I have been married for 41 years and a military wife of an Air Force Officer for 32 of those years. I began my post collegiate time raising a family as a stay at home mom for 13 years, then a small business owner, and prior to teaching a Director of Planning & Zoning for a municipality in Michigan. Upon moving to Temecula in 1999, I decided to embark on a third career and received my education credential from California State San Marcos and a Masters in Education Administration from National University. I was hired in TVUSD in 2001 and I have been with the district my entire educational career. I also currently serve as an Adjunct Professor at Concordia University.
I am the proud mother of three adult daughters, one graduate of Chaparral High School and two graduates of Temecula Valley High School, and three granddaughters all who attend TVUSD schools. When not spending time on campus, I enjoy traveling with my husband, golf, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
Please come up and introduce yourself when you see me on our campus during the day or at our many athletic events and student activities. My administrative team is here to support all students, staff, and families and we value the partnership we have with our Golden Bear Community. TVHS is a wonderful school and we are proud of our Golden Bear tradition of excellence!
Here is to an amazing year at TVHS!
