President: Mimi Vidal

Hi Bear Creek family! I have four boys. My oldest is finishing up his first year in the Navy in San Diego. My 19 yr old has a chronic illness but is a fun and positive kid to be around. Elliott is in the 8th grade at HMS and Ian is a third grader here at BCE. This is my 3rd year with the PTA board. I love PTA because it gives me an opportunity to know the teachers and advocate for my children and yours. When I’m not doing PTA, I’m working at AA as a flight attendant. I enjoy meeting parents and their kids. If you see me around, please say HI !

My wife, Becca, and I have four awesome children. We have twin boys, Nathan and Jordan, that are in third grade this year and twin five year olds, Carson and Harper. When we aren’t at school we are busy with family, usually shuffling kids from one event to another. I consider it a huge honor to serve as principal of Bear Creek Elementary. Bear Creek is a fabulous school, with excellent teachers, excellent parents, and plenty of amazingly awesome students!
