Rey Medellin is a 34 year old counselor here at DaVinci Academy. He was born and raised in Galveston, Texas. He later joined the army reserve and went to Iraq twice for combat. After returning, he met his wife, Mrs. Medellin. Later on, him and his wife moved to Utah because he came for a visit and he realized it was a safe environment and he decided to stay. He now has three children, two of whom go to DaVinci Academy, Anthony Medellin (8th grade) and Bella Medellin (2nd grade).

Before coming to DaVinci, Mr. Medellin worked with kids who had gang-related problems and that’s when he found his love for helping kids.

“It makes me happy to see kids succeed. Helping kids is the best part of my job, I check with them every day to see if they are okay.” He chose DaVinci because his kids already went here and it was a one school district.

Fun Fact: Mr. Medellin has eaten McDonald’s in 11 different countries.
