Hi, my name is Riqui Villarreal and I've taught PE at Cannon Elementary since 2009. GCISD has been my home since 2005; before becoming a Cannon Cub, I was a Shooting Star at Silver Lake Elementary. Growing up in Dallas, I was a huge Rangers, Mavericks and Cowboys fan. I graduated high school from St. Mark's School of Texas where I played football, threw shot put and discus on the track team and wrestled.
At Cannon I teach Physical Education to all students in grades K-5 and along with Nurse Sue oversee the Cannon RoadRunners fitness club. In addition to being certified to teach PE in grade levels EC-12, I am certified as an EC-4 Generalist in English and Spanish.
I attended Wheaton College just outside Chicago where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Christian Education in 2002. Believe it or not, while I was there, I added a different sport to my list, cheerleading! After finishing my degree, I spent a little over two years as the youth director at a church in Long Beach, California. When I'm away from Cannon, I coach high school wrestling during the winter, and once or twice a week I work the front desk at the Grapevine Community Activities Center. These days, my favorite sports are baseball (still a huge Rangers fan), soccer (los Pumas del UNAM and the Mexican National Team) and high school and college wrestling. Most of my family lives in the DFW metroplex and I enjoy spending time with them and my friends. I live here in Grapevine with my wife (Mrs. Coach V) and son (Baby Coach V); we do a lot of walking and hanging around town, keep your eyes peeled and you might see us!
I absolutely consider it a privilege to work with the staff, students and parents at Cannon and I am expecting to have a fantastic year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.

Hi, My name is Caryn Zollmann and this is my first year at Cannon Elementary as a coach, but this is not my first year as a cub. I grew up in Grapevine and when I was a child I went to Cannon Elementary! I am so excited to be back here and have the opportunity to work with the amazing students that attend this school. I am certified to teach P.E. in all grade levels EC-12. I attended Texas A&M University where I received my Bachelor of Science in Health Education in 2009. Of course being an Aggie I love all things Texas A&M like going back for football games and watching them play on T.V. Some of my hobbies include running, playing volleyball, and going to the movies. I have been married to my amazing husband Joe for almost 2 years, he is a Pilot for American Eagle, and we live in Grapevine. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and having a fun and productive year! : )
