My name is Chris Virdell, I work in the Special Education Department. I am also the Head Girls Volleyball Coach, Head Girls Basketball Coach and Head Varsity Track Coach. This is my eighth year at Balmorhea ISD and I am looking forward to the beginning of a new year!
I am originally from Sierra Blanca, Texas. I graduated from Sierra Blanca High School in 1991. I attended school at Sul Ross State University. I spent seven years teaching and coaching at Sierra Blanca ISD and one year at Fort Hancock ISD. I have been part of the school systems in Texas for 17 years.
I am married to Marisol Virdell and we have 8 wonderful children. Alex, Marcus, Elise, Chance, Marco, Lucas, Garrett, and Marissa.
I truly appreciate the opportunity to live in Balmorhea and to work at Balmorhea ISD. I have taken the opportunity to teach, coach, be part of your childrens lives and to be part of the community very seriously with great appreciation.
BEAR PRIDE RUNS DEEP!!!
