• Welcome to our class.  I am very excited about working with all of you and, while a lot of things are going to be different this year, I know that all of you are going to do great!

    My name is Mark Villegas, all the students just call me "Mr. V"  This will be my 8th year here at A. Dorothy Hains Elementary and my first year teaching STEM Science!

    I graduated fromMemorial Senoir High School in Tulsa, OK in 1989. After high school, I attended Tarrant County Junior College and in 1995 I joined the United States Army, serving as a Field Artilleryman for one year and then served 14 years as a Military Policeman before my military retirement in 2007.  While serving in the military, I obtained an Associates of Arts, Bachelors of Science and Masters of Arts Degrees. After my military retirement, I was a government contractor working in the area of education and training of current and future US Army service members.  

    In 2014, I began my teaching career in Aiken, SC before obtaining my position here at A. Dorothy Hains in 2016.  I enjoy teaching and educating this country's future leaders.  I have three daughters, ages 22, 21 and 14, and my son is 32.  I enjoy sports (playing, coaching and officiating).  Originally from Texas, but got to Georgia while serving in the military.  

    I strive to create a fun, enjoyable and safe learning environment for all our students to learn to their fullest potential.
