Dr. Reymundo Cervantes-Guajardo
Dr. Reymundo Cervantes-Guajardo begins his 17th year in education, excited to join the School for the Talented and Gifted in Pleasant Grove and work along with this high-achieving community!
As a Hispanic male school leader, his experiences have driven him to manage with a relentless commitment to excellence, advocacy for all children, personalization, and a passion for building a legacy of equity and excellence.
He believes that education must equip students with the necessary tools to grow academically, build self-awareness, and guide social behavior to compete and contribute to a global society. As a school leader, he anchors himself in the power of a long-term vision and strategy to achieve positive outcomes for students when all stakeholders are committed to a common goal.
Before joining STAG, Dr. Cervantes led Henry B. Gonzalez Personalized Learning Academy in Pleasant Grove. He championed the transformation from a traditional neighborhood instructional model to a personalized learning approach with the primary focus of ensuring high-quality teaching, student agency, and achievement. Gonzalez PL Academy has maintained a high-achieving campus rating from state accountability throughout the past five years.
Reymundo was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, and has been living in Dallas, TX, for the past sixteen years. Before becoming an educator, he pursued an international dual degree program from institutions in both Mexico and France. He holds a Bachelor of Marketing from the Universidad Regiomontana and a Bachelor of Business from the Institut de Formation Internationale.
Having started as a bilingual teacher at Kahn Elementary in Oak Cliff, Dr. Cervantes realized the impact of dual language education and the importance of parent partnerships in their students’ education. This led him to pursue a Master's Degree in Bilingual Education focusing on the gifted and talented.
As a life-long learner, Reymundo continued his education, earning a doctorate from Southern Methodist University in Educational Leadership & Policy. Because of his leadership, he was named the 2021-2022 Dallas ISD Elementary School Principal of the Year.
