Mr. Richard Bruce » Bio


Welcome to St. Monica Catholic High School, a place where All Are Welcome!  I am Mr. Rick Bruce, SMCHS Program Administration and Facilities Associate and Girls' Tennis and Boys' Tennis coach.  Serving the students of St. Monica Catholic High School is truly a blessing in my life.  

I became a teacher right out of college in 1977 and this is my 43rd year as an educator with the last 19 here at St. Monica.  I was born in South Texas and moved to California 18 years ago.  Aside from my vocation as a catholic educator, my family and tennis are my passions.  I played college tennis in the mid 70's and have coached in one way or another for the last 43 years.  My wife and I have been married for 35 wonderful years and we have two adult children, ages 27 & 25.  They are the joys of my life.  I am very excited about year 19 here at St. Monica Catholic High School and look forward to spending time with our awesome students and faculty.  St. Monica, Pray for Us!
