Mr. Jon Torres

This will be my third year teaching and coaching. I am excited for this journey and I look forward to helping my students achieve their goals. I currently also serve as a First Lieutenant in the TX Army National Guard. Serving as a field artillery officer has been a great experience and I hope my experience in the military will benefit the classroom. I was born and raised in Norman, OK (home of Sooner football) and have been a giant OU fan my entire life. My wife is getting her doctorate in counseling psychology and we live with our two cats.
