Get To Know Mr. Villegas

“I am fun loving, easy going, you’ll-never-forget-you-met-me kind of guy! I am married to a wonderful woman, a Mrs. Valerie Villegas, and the proud papa of our dog Willis. Val and I love to play sports and enjoy a good eating spot here in Austin. I personally love to play disc golf, work out, swim, dance, sing, and watch a good movie!

I incorporate my faith in my teaching because I believe that God works through his Holy Word and through the Holy Spirit. While our planning, instruction, and assessments are critical to education, they do not provide spiritual growth. Jesus acknowledged from Whom faith development arises. John 6:63 says, ‘It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.’ God the Holy Spirit creates faith and nurtures it through the Word. We have the privilege of sharing in this work, but God alone can give spiritual life.”
