Assistant Principal

Hello! My name is Juan Serrano, and I am proud to serve as the Assistant Principal at C.E. King High School 9th Grade Campus. 

I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and grew up in Tampa, Florida. I always had education in the core of my life. I grew up being around teachers and always looked to serve others. 

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Foreign Language Education and my Master of Arts in French from the University of South Florida. I worked in public and private K-12 schools where I taught French, Spanish and ELA. After teaching for four years in the Sunshine State, I relocated to Texas. I served as a teacher in Seguin ISD for six years where I taught French and Spanish and also served as the LOTE Department Head. 

I received my Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Texas State University. My journey began by a simple reflection: "If I could make a difference in one student's life, how much impact could I make at a campus level?" I have always reflected back on the teachers that made a difference in my life and I always aspired to rise to the occasion and leave my mark and create a legacy.
I am blessed to join Sheldon ISD and continue to serve students, teachers/staff, parents and the community!
