Assistant Principal
L-Z Administrator
Hello and welcome to my webpage. My name is Gina Annette Alvarez, and I'm a proud Cavalier. I have the honor and the great privilege to be serving Mission CISD as an Assistant Principal at Rafael Cantu Junior High (on my 6th year).
I am a graduate of Mission High School, the 'Mighty Mission Eagles', and received my bachelor's degree from The University of Texas - Pan American. I had the opportunity to serve as an elementary teacher at Alton Elementary and Midkiff Elementary. Several years ago, I decided to advance my career by pursuing a master's degree in Education Administration from Lamar University. Obtaining this degree helped me gain experience as a leader. I worked as a Math Instructional Coach at Kenneth White Junior High before moving to Rafael Cantu Jr. High as the Assistant Principal. I have been truly blessed working with dedicated leaders throughout my career. I continue to strive for nothing but the best for our students.
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband Rene, my 3 children Isaac (UTRGV), Iris (11th grade at VMHS) and Joaquin (8th grader at Rafael Cantu Jr. High), and my dogs Bella & June. Among my passions: family, friends, music, reading.
Again, I am honored to be the Assistant Principal at Rafael Cantu Jr. High. I look forward to working with administration, students, teachers, parents, and community to make this a successful year.
