Tom Domer, Principal

I have been the proud principal of Central Middle school since 2015. It's a pleasure to be here and have the opportunity to work together with the amazing San Carlos community. I am truly excited to work collaboratively with parents, students, and staff to ensure a positive and enriching learning environment for our children.

As you may know, my passion is in creating a positive school environment where students are confident to take risks and stretch themselves to their fullest potential. This is what drives my commitment to fostering a thriving educational community.

I strongly believe that a successful school is built on a foundation of collaboration between educators, parents, and students. I am dedicated to fostering open communication and working together to ensure the success and well-being of every student. A major goal is to create an inclusive, innovative, and nurturing learning environment where every child can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

​​My goal is to get to know every student personally so that I can best serve the community. I believe that working to develop personal connections is one of the most important aspects in education. I am particularly interested in engaging my efforts in a school with strong commitment to family and community involvement. Working to foster the potential of every student is a particular passion of mine.

I have an open door policy so please feel free to stop by my office to say hi whenever you get a chance.

Hello Central Middle School Community,


I am honored to be part of the administration team and part of the Central Middle School Community! I joined CMS in the fall of 2022 and have really enjoyed my time working with students, staff, and community members. I started my career teaching middle school math (with some English, French, and science) in Chicago and Boston before returning to the Bay Area where I was born and raised. Before entering school administration, I took some time off to raise my three young kids and also worked for two educational non-profits serving low-income K-8 students on the Peninsula. I also was the Community Service Coordinator at my children’s elementary school, and I have enjoyed incorporating Service Learning into our Advisory curriculum here at CMS.


While I love teaching, I am most passionate about whole-school improvement, which is why I became a school administrator. I enjoy working with middle school students and trying to provide strong academic and personal growth opportunities that will benefit them during these years of transition between childhood and adolescence. I really enjoy my interactions with students and staff and make an effort to be a positive influence in their lives. I recently (May 2023) graduated with my doctorate in educational leadership from USC, which was a challenging endeavor but a satisfying one! 


Please stop by anytime to introduce yourself or email me to set up a time to meet about whatever concerns you may have. I look forward to continuing to contribute to this amazing San Carlos school and community.



Julie Jobak, School Counselor

Supporting students with their academic, social-emotional and college/career needs is what I focus on at CMS. Middle school can be challenging for our students for various reasons. Our students’ brains and bodies are still growing and they may need assistance in problem solving, conflict resolution, accountability and executive functioning. I’m also available to work with Parents/Guardians/Caregivers to offer support during challenging times.
