Principal Teresa Hernandez
Teresa Cuellar-Hernandez - Principal
I am Teresa Cuellar-Hernandez, and I am excited, honored and humbled to serve as the principal of John Jay High School. This is my 23rd year in the Northside Independent School District. I started my teaching career right here at John Jay HS, opened up Warren HS, served as an assistant principal at Marshall HS, vice principal at Stevens HS and most recently served as the John Jay Science and Engineering principal.

To our students: I cannot wait to see all of the wonderful things you do. I will work to make your experiences purposeful, meaningful, and enjoyable. My hope is that you each take advantage of the academic opportunities, the support systems that are in place for you, and get involved in your high school experience through the many extracurricular organizations available on campus.

My vision is to ensure that all students achieve both academically and socially beyond personal expectations while experiencing an outstanding and enjoyable education. I want students to be exposed to opportunities like no other and make each of your educational dreams come true. We can accomplish this together. I truly BELIEVE in each and every one of my students. YES WE CAN!!!
