Mr. Jose R Murillo Jr

Vines family, ATTEN-TION!

I am the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) Army Instructor (AI) at Vines and Clark High Schools. I just retired from the US Army after 20 years, and this is my first year teaching at Plano ISD. I am really excited to work with all the students, staff, and parents "to motivate young people to be better citizens". 

I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I came up through the Dallas ISD system and I am a 4 year JROTC student as well! My life has come full circle as a JROTC student, serving my country, and now I am teaching JROTC. I served all over the US and the world including: over 6 US states, Germany, Republic of Korea, Bulgaria, Romania, Iraq, and Afghanistan to name a few.

My only goal is to make students better citizens in the classroom, school, community, and country. If any student leaves my classroom with one positive thing or with a new skill to help them in their life then I have achieved my goal. I am not trying to recruit any student into any armed services. If that is their goal and plan, then I can definitely help, but my goal is not recruitment. Whatever the student's goal is, I will try and help to equip them with the skills needed for success beyond high school.  

I'm really looking forward to the 2023-24 school year!
