Principal's Bio


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Richard Marquez and I have the extraordinary privilege of being the principal at Hatch Elementary School (HES). My professional career includes ten years as an elementary teacher and sixteen years as a principal entirely with the Hatch Valley Public Schools. 

I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Western New Mexico University at Silver City, New Mexico and a Master of Arts in Educational Administration from New Mexico State University at Las Cruces, New Mexico.

I am looking forward to working with you and your child this coming year. Please be assured that our teaching staff and I will provide the best education possible for your child within a safe and respectful school environment.
