Michele Barajas studied at Delta College and now teaches preschool.
Michele's love for volleyball started when she began playing at the age of seven and continued to grow through middle and high school as she played for school and club. After playing for eleven years she went on to be an assistant coach for 4 years, as well as reffing middle school volleyball for 3 years. Afterwards, she became the 8th grade volleyball coach at El Portal middle school and had been with them for 5 years. She has worked with the younger age groups for the past 10 years and has gone up with her recent team starting at 12’s.
She believes it’s important to teach that sportsmanship and teamwork are just as important as being competitive and having the will to work hard for results. She is excited to pass on her love for the game and the skills that come with it, skills can be used on and off the court.
