Mr. Villalvazo won the City of Bell Teacher Award. A ceremony was held May 2nd, a day after Villalvazo had been notified about his accomplishment.

Principal Mr. Balderas and Assistant Principal Ms. Torres-Ring attended the ceremony with Mr. Villalvazo at the Bell Community Center.

Mr. Villalvazo did not know he was nominated by the students for this award, and the administration approved the nomination. He was notified May 1st by City of Bell Council Member Nestor Enriquez. “I felt honored and humbled.  I didn’t know,” said Mr. Villalvazo. Only one teacher is nominated in every middle and high school in Bell for this award every year.

“I was very happy to see him win that award. I thought it was great,” Librarian Ms. Salanoa said.

This will be Mr. Villalvazo’s final year teaching at Bell High School. He has taught for 32 and a half years at Bell, starting in 1985. “I’m teaching to help students to be the best they can be,” Mr. Villalvazo said.

“I’ve known Vinny for 30 years, and I know from talking to students for 30 years that they really enjoy his class,” Physical Education Teacher Ms. Pickard said. “I’m going to miss Mr. Villalvazo.”
