My name is Ruben Pesina. It is a distinct honor to be the new Principal of New Frontiers Elementary and Middle Schools. I am a native of San Antonio, born and raised on the South Side. In fact, my maternal and paternal grandparents’ homes are in neighborhoods surrounding the New Frontiers Campus.
I attended St. Mary’s University and earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science. I am a member of the inaugural cohort of UTSA’s Urban School Leaders Collaborative. Through the collaborative, I earned a Master’s of Arts Degree in Educational Leadership. The collaborative focused on social justice leadership within urban school districts.
The mission of New Frontiers is to educate and grow our students and their character. I will compassionately reach out to people in our own community, to give our students a sense of pride and purpose, inspiring them to become tomorrow’s leaders.
On a personal note, I am blessed with a loving family. My wife Robyn and children Marina, Ruben, and Mathiana are my inspiration and foundation.
