My name is Richard Mayers and this is my 23rd year teaching in the Clark County School District (CCSD). I started my career at Votech/Southeast Tech and absolutely love teaching here. The administration, faculty, and students are the best in the district. Starting this school year I’m proud of the fact that my son will be attending this great institution. I love teaching Math and I love helping students.
When I am not working I love spending time with my amazing wife and family. I have five outstanding children, Michelle (18), Jacob (16), Dominic (10), Kaitlyn (8) and little baby Emma (3). I am a truly blessed individual.
I was born and raised in the Las Vegas/Henderson area. I graduated with a Bachelors of Arts degree from UNLV and a Master’s degree from NOVA Southeastern University.
I love competing in sports and games (especially video games). I like watching Star Wars, UNLV basketball and the Pittsburgh Steelers (and believe it or not the Golden Knights are making me a hockey fan).
Hey Tech, I’m Mr. Becker! I have been at SECTA (Vo-Tech) for 16 years. I’m a Learning Strategist here at Tech, so you may see me in different classes, team-teaching with your Math or English teacher. I graduated from Clark High School back in the day, and attended UNLV during the exciting football and basketball years. My senior year at UNLV the Rebels won the national championship in basketball, it was an exciting time! I coached football for 15 years (Clark, Bonanza, and Silverado), boy’s volleyball, boy’s golf, and girl’s golf. I loved my coaching years, and still attend a high school football game when I can. I am a huge outdoor enthusiast, with fishing being my ultimate passion. I have been competing in bass tournaments for over 20 years and love every minute of it. I have a beautiful family that keeps me grounded. My son graduated from Tech in 2013 in the Construction Major, and now works for the City of Henderson. My wife is a huge animal lover, where she works closely with local rescues to help place dogs in foster or forever homes. We have a rescue Pitt that is a complete Love, and a rescued cat that literally runs the household. I look forward to watching you all grow up and move on to bigger and better things. You are at the Best high school in the City!
Hi everyone! My name is Mrs. Kent-Valdovinos. Yes, I acknowledge I have a very long last name...so you can definitely call me Mrs. KV or KV...whatever floats your boat. I grew up in California with my two younger brothers. We spend our Spring and Thanksgiving breaks camping and dirt biking in the desert with my parents. In high school I was involved in the dance team and loved performing. I moved to Vegas three years ago to start teaching and this is my first year at Tech! I enjoy hanging out at the beach, escaping the heat in Mount Charleston, and grooving to music. I've been married to my husband for two years now and we have a baby boy who may have a guest appearance on our google meet times. I have the best job on the planet and I am so lucky to get to work with you all every day. See ya' in the virtual classroom!
