Juan Cabrera became superintendent of the El Paso Independent School District on Sept. 3, 2013. Along with his leadership team, Cabrera seeks to provide EPISD’s young scholars with an academically rigorous, character-based dual-language education, focusing on the “whole-child”. This approach seeks to assure EPISD graduates are academically prepared, well-rounded, civic-minded young citizens. Working with EPISD’s dedicated teachers and administrators, Cabrera seeks to drive innovation and create “schools of choice” and great schools across the city to assure every child is provided every opportunity to succeed and learn in dynamic learning environments. Cabrera is a former elementary bilingual teacher but spent 20 years away from the classroom working as a technology attorney and software executive. Cabrera graduated from Texas A & I University in 1988 and the University of Texas School of Law in 1996. He was selected as 2015 Texas Latino Superintendent of the Year.
