Hello! My name is Miss Villegas, and I am so excited to be working with you all this year for English Language Arts and Social Studies. As you enter the classroom, my goal is to learn about each and everyone of you, but for now, you get to learn about me! Though not raised in the Los Angeles area, I was born in Southern California, and have lived there most of my life. I am close to my family, and have 8 pretty awesome siblings! I love, love, love reading! I also enjoy painting, knitting, hiking, and watching movies. I have a cat named Vader (got to love Star Wars), and enjoy geeking out whenever I can.
I studied at UCLA for undergrad, and Central Michigan University for my master’s degree. I always knew I wanted to go into education, and am happy with my choice to follow my dream. I believe that education is a right for all students, no matter their backgrounds. It is a community effort that requires multiple parties – students, parents, teachers, community members – to strive toward a common goal of academic success. I truly believe that each and every one of you have what it takes to succeed in both academics, and in life. Always look forward, and never give up. I look forward to meeting you all soon!
