My name is Juan Cabrera. I am the Superintendent of the El Paso Independent School District in Texas. This blog was created so that I, along with my colleagues, can share how we are trying to help transform education in the U.S.

Our purpose:

  1. Learn about the work. We don’t really know what we think about the work until we write it down. It’s how we process the complexity, develop our mental models and attempt to articulate a coherent point of view.
  2. Improve impact. We write to share the hard work of our colleagues in an effort to rally local, regional, and national support so that all children in El Paso benefit from active learning, strong supports and great community partnerships.
  3. Extend impact. We write to share our lessons learned in ways that may be relevant to other teachers and leaders and may lead to improved student outcomes.
