My name is Trisha Lyn Lopez.  I have two sons. This is my 15th year at Diamond Valley Elementary.  I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada.  I started my education in Las Vegas at the community college.  When my father retired from the school system in Las Vegas, he retired in Santa Clara, Utah and my boys and I came out and followed him. I graduated from Dixie State College. Together with my husband we like to camp and travel.  We spend our time doing things with our family and we love to hike and take our dog on walks.
