Superintendent's Corner

Dr. Coronado

Having served in U.S. military for nearly 22 years, I lived in many parts of our country but have
had the unique opportunity to come full circle. My father was born and raised here in Weslaco
and I now proudly serve as the Superintendent of Schools. I am home and I could not be more
honored. I have been welcomed into a district with over 100 years of tradition and history and I
believe the next 100 years will be even better. As we strive to both honor the past and prepare
for the future, I will do everything to ensure teachers are equipped to handle the daunting task
of educating our students, that principals are empowered to make the decisions that fit their
school's needs and that the board and I will always work together to make everything
transparent and learner centered.
Like other superintendents before me, I do not take this charge lightly. I strongly believe that
Weslaco ISD will continue to thrive. The district’s excellence lies at the heart of the district: the
classroom. I will do my best to ensure teachers are able to cultivate that special relationship
with their students. We have aligned all our resources to support our teachers at every campus
to create and support a positive learning environment that is safe and healthy for our student’s
success. Our schools are now aligned to Team Panther and Team Wildcats as a clear trajectory
for our students’ success. A Dual Language Academy is underway to better serve our
community and other academies are in the works.
I look forward to this school year and getting to experience all the great things we will
accomplish together. There are exciting things on the horizon for Weslaco ISD and together we
can do anything because “We are WEslaco”.
