The Doty Middle School Administration:

Principal, Mr. Brent Shubin –









Mr. Shubin is a Downey Native…

Mr. Shubin attended East Middle School (now Doty Middle School) as a student in the late 1970’s and still enjoys calling Downey home.  He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from California State University Long Beach, and his Master of Education from Azusa Pacific University.  He has served in the Downey Unified School District as an instructional assistant for two years, as a middle school teacher for 8 years, and as a middle school vice principal for 5 years prior to becoming the principal of Doty Middle School in 2003.  He takes great pride in Doty Middle School’s tradition of excellence academically and the safe and orderly learning environment Doty affords its students and their families.


Vice Principal, Mr. Franco Garcia

Mr. Garcia

Mr. Garcia is a Downey native attending Griffiths as a child. From there he went on to graduate from Cal State Fullerton and Concordia University where he earned a Bachelor in Business Administration and a Masters in Educational Leadership. He was a Dean at Griffiths for one year, and before that he was a SDC teacher here at Doty! Mr. Garcia’s favorite part about this job is getting to work with the students and staff and helping any way he can.



Dean of Students, Ms. Nicole Raridon

Ms. Rariodon

Ms. Rariodon is from Southern California and attended Talbert Middle School in Huntington Beach. After graduating high school she went to the University of Hawaii and earned a degree in Special Education, Bachelors in Education, Masters in Teaching, and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (which is even better than a masters). Before becoming a Dean, she was the Autism and Behavior Analyst for DUSD.  Ms. Rariodon says the best part of her job is when she gets to reward students with recognition when they do something awesome!  She’s excited to be apart of the Doty team and we are lucky to have her.
