Eddie Lopez

My family has lived in the San Tan Valley since 2004. We have seen the growth and changes through the years.  We are excited to see the Florence Unified School District continue to blossom in our area with top rated schools throughout the area.  We will continue to provide academic and social learning to all students as our top goal is to prepare all students to be college or career ready by the time that they graduate from high school.
I have been married for many years to my lovely wife, Liisa.  We have six children that have attended FUSD schools.  During my educational career, I have been a classroom teacher for eight years and in administration for over ten years.  I enjoy being in education to help students meet their educational goals and provide an opportunity for academic success.  United as a community and a school, we will continue to build this great community as a top county within our state.
