        Professor Villarreal earned his Master of Science degree in Mathematics from Texas A&M University-Kingsville.  Prior to earning his graduate degree, Professor Villarreal’s college education began by attending Bee County College after graduating from high school.  He continued his undergraduate coursework by transferring to then Texas A&I University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. 


        Since 1993, Professor Villarreal has taught the following mathematics courses offered at CBC:Basic Math, Beginning/Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, Fundamentals of Mathematics, Contemporary Mathematics, Trigonometry, Mathematics for Business & Social Sciences, Calculus for Business & Social Sciences, Statistics, Pre-Calculus, Calculus I, II, & III.  He served as Tutor Coordinator for the Mathematics Division and also received training to help implement the first Supplemental Instruction Program in the Mathematics Division at CBC.  Before his years as a faculty member in the Mathematics Division at CBC, Professor Villarreal was employed with a Naval Aviation ground support contractor as a Plane Captain for the VT-26 Training Squadron at N.A.S. Chase Field in Beeville, Texas, which operated the T2-Buckeye jet aircraft.  After earning his Bachelor of Science degree, he taught Algebra I, Algebra II Honors, Trigonometry, and Analytic Geometry courses at Robstown High School where he also helped coach the UIL Calculator team.  The following year, Professor Villarreal began the first year of his college teaching career teaching in the Mathematics Division at then Bee County College with his former professors.  From that time on, he has been a full-time faculty member with the Mathematics Division at CBC.  College Mathematics Courses which he is currently teaching are Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra, Mathematics for Business & Social Sciences, Calculus for Business & Social Sciences, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus I.  In addition to teaching, Professor Villarreal also works with mathematics faculty to review and develop division policies and course curriculum, and serves as the webmaster for the Mathematics Division. Recently, Professor Villarreal was honored as the Keynote Speaker for the 2015 Coastal Bend College graduating class, highlighting that each student is writing their personal story in the pursuit of their goal and to work hard to make each chapter as memorable as possible with their accomplishments.  This was an exciting experience for him and one that he will always remember. 


       Some of his hobbies are pencil sketching and playing his guitar when he has time(he actually began learning by listening to his colleague and former Chemistry professor, Professor Burns, playing in the courtyard during their lunch breaks).  Aside from his hobbies, his favorite dessert is tiramisu, sports he likes to watch are football and track & field, his favorite past-time is going fishing with his two sons and daughter when they have time off, and sitting down with his wife to eat popcorn and watch a movie together.  The message that Professor Villarreal has always given to his children is the same message he passes onto to his college students, and that is to be respectful, pay attention to the little things, and always do your best each day because you can.  This he learned from his parents, as well as the importance and value of getting his education(in the field and in the classroom), and that hard work was vital to building strong character and achieving one's goals.  Finally, Professor Villarreal always looks forward to spending time with his family each day, because that is very important in his life.
