Mr. Cuellar's parents were both teachers who raised him loving the good things of life: food, music, reading, travelling, and of course, learning! He has lived many places, including: El Paso, San Antonio, Alaska, Seattle, Columbus (Ohio), and of course, Austin. He began teaching third grade in El Paso. In 2007 he moved to Austin and began teaching here. He taught third grade for seven years and fifth grade since then. Mr. Cuellar loves the precept from Wonder, "When given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind." His high school mascot was a Thunderbird and he is very excited to be a Thunderbird again!
