My name is Justin Bales and I am originally from California. I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of Oklahoma and a Master's degree from Central Michigan University. I am passionate about education and believe the learning environment should be engaging, challenging, and fun. I am an energetic person who likes to help people in anyway I can. I have a wife and two kids who I adore and love to travel with. I am a sports junkie, love Hawaii, soccer, football, aviation, and leadership. I recently left the Oklahoma Air National Guard where I earned Oklahoma's top airman for the state.
