CSM (R) Michael Marquez
I was born in Phoenix, Arizona and raised in Chihuahua, Mexico. I joined the US Army at the age of seventeen and ended up making it a 28-year career. While in the US Army,I had the opportunity to visit many parts of the world and meet many interesting people. Upon my retirement from the military, I decided to embark on a new career as a JROTC instructor. As luck would have it, I found an opening at RYSS and I have just started my 14th year here. I really love my job and I hope to be here many more years. I have earned a Bachelors of Science Degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and a Masters of Education Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
