Joe Nuñez was born in Santa Maria, grew up in Guadalupe and taught at Righetti High School for more than 20 years. “I loved teaching,” Nuñez said.
So much so, he devoted the last 17 years of his career to work for the California Teachers Association (CTA), the largest affiliate within the National Education Association.
Today, Nuñez begins a role as the executive director of the state union.
