Mr. Hector Villanueva

Fifth Grade Co-Team Leader


I have been a teacher with Plano I.S.D. for 21 years. The majority of my experience has been as a teacher assigned to Special Programs, where I taught 7th and 8th mathematics. My last 2 years have been at Shepard Elementary teaching 5th grade. Prior to coming to PISD, I worked with Capital One Auto Finance as a system analyst, and taught with the United Independent School District in Laredo, Texas as an Algebra 1 and 8th math teacher, in addition to teaching computer math. Prior to Laredo, I worked in Cotulla, Texas for 2 years as an Algebra 1 teacher.

Anyone who comes in before that eats in the cafeteria and leaves at 7:40 to go to class. Those kids are not allowed to leave with breakfast items. Breakfast opens at 7:00. If your student plans on eating breakfast at school, please allow them enough time to get their breakfast and eat it in order to be in class on time at 7:40 ready to learn.
