School Leadership

Daniel Sommer, Principal
Daniel Sommer has been working in middle school education since 2005 and has been at Vista Charter Middle School since 2011. Relationships are at the core of what Mr. Sommer believes.  He is driven by the idea that people do not care about how much you know until they know how much you care. He makes it a point to let all students know that they are important and have the ability to achieve great things.  After teaching for 13 years in the classroom he transitioned into educational leadership. He received his administrative credential and Master in Educational Leadership from Cal State Dominguez Hills in 2019. When not at Vista, Mr. Sommer spends the majority of time with his wife Susan and three daughters Paige, Quinn, and Riley.
