Meet our Administration

Thomas Domer, Principal


Hello Central Middle School Community,

My name is Thomas Domer and I am the Central Middle School Principal. CMS has a reputation for having the best students, teachers, and families in the Bay Area, and I am lucky to be a part of the CMS community.

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 been working in education for the past 16 years. I began my career at a middle school in San Francisco teaching English and history. I taught high school English in New York City and Burbank, California. I also briefly taught English at Sequoia High School.

More recently, I have been in Pleasanton as a Vice-Principal at a school of nearly 1200 students. There I was charged with curriculum and moving our school to full implementation of the new Common Core Standards. My job was to provide materials that kept teachers up-to-date on best teaching practices, research and programs. I also worked closely with other school administrators on ways to best support our students to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

I look forward to a great year ahead of me getting to know the CMS community. Please stop by my office to say hi whenever you get a chance.

Julie Jobak, Counselor

I’ve been the counselor at CMS since January 2002 and I also was a student at CMS many years ago. I feel extremely lucky to work in such a collaborate and positive environment. I focus on supporting students with academic and social emotional situations. I also provide college and career assistance. I work closely with the amazing teachers and administration to ensure students are being fully supported. My core beliefs are in growth mindset, mindfulness and solution focused counseling.

I received my Masters of Arts and Pupil Personnel Services Credential in Educational Counseling at San Jose State University.
