Tournament Hills Elementary School
January 8, 2021
Dear Tournament Hills Families,
I wish everyone a Happy New Year. May 2021 bring you health
and happiness. I am Michelle Pierce and I am honored and excited
to be serving as Tournament Hills Elementary School’s new Principal.
During my first four days, I have had the pleasure of meeting many
parents, staff, teachers, and district administrators. What is very
evident from these conversations is the rich history of academic
excellence and strong home-school-community relationships at
Tournament Hills. I am committed to maintaining rigor in teaching and
learning and strength in relationships.
I have been an educator for 22 years. My experience includes being an elementary and middle school teacher, an elementary instructional coach, a teacher on special assignment, and an elementary principal for the past 7 years. I am a lifelong learner and I am dedicated to continuously learning ways to meet all students’ academic and social-emotional needs. I am currently pursuing my doctorate in Educational Leadership at USC so that I may better serve the students, families, and staff I work beside.
Perhaps more important to know about me, I am a long-time resident of Beaumont and parent to three children, all of whom attended Three Rings Ranch Elementary, Mountain View Middle School, and Beaumont High School. I am acutely aware of the rewards and challenges parents face every day in raising children to be scholars, responsible citizens, and simply good human beings.
I am equally committed to supporting and engaging students and families in challenging learning opportunities and enriching events and activities both in and outside of the classroom. You can expect to see me in the halls, classrooms, the playground - anywhere teaching, learning, and fun are being had.

In partnership and service,
Principal, Tournament Hills Elementary School
