    Mr. Gabriel Guerra


    15 Years in Education/ 7 Years as a Spartan



    My educational journey began at W.T. White High School. I am a proud Longhorn and second-generation Dallas ISD teacher. My journey took me to the University of Texas at Dallas where I graduated with my Bachelor of History Degree.

    My teaching journey started at W.W. Samuell High School. I enjoyed teaching Social Studies and coaching baseball. My proudest moment as a teacher was watching my first group of students graduate and receive their diploma. My proudest moment as a coach was defeating a division rival 6-5 and knocking them out of the playoffs.

    In 2013 I was accepted into the SMU Teaching Trust Program. Sadly, I had to leave W.W. Samuell in 2014 to pursue an Assistant Principal position at Seagoville HS. In 2016 I was selected to be the Assistant Principal for the 1st P-TECH Early College high school in the state of Texas. Over 5 years I was able to assist over 100 1st generation college going students graduate with their Associates of Applied Science Degree.

    My journey took me away from Dallas ISD in 2021. My wife and I accepted an opportunity at a Dual Language middle school in Springfield, Massachusetts. However, our hearts were always in Texas. I am proud to return to Dallas ISD, and more importantly I am super proud to return home to W.W. Samuell High School.
