Mr. Javier Cervantes-Tinajero

Hello Roughneck family,

My name is Mr. Javier Cervantes-Tinajero! It is a pleasure to be serving as a part of the Pearland Junior High East community. I am a proud graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington and I am extremely excited to be part of the learning journey of all students. Before coming to East, I had the pleasure of working with the AVID program, where I developed a passion for student success and acquisition of skills that promote success that reverberates beyond the classroom. I have experience in SAT, ACT, and TSI tutoring and have assisted multiple graduating seniors in the college application process. I am a firm believer that it takes one person to make the difference in the lives of a future professional. I hope to be that person. Student advocacy and education are imperative skills that make a major difference in the development of an effective community that works to establish a culture of respect, compassion, and kindness. It is my ultimate belief that student success is achieved through the appropriate interactions between parents, teachers, and students.

If there is anything you need anything from me, please let me know and I will do everything in my power to assist you! It is my duty (and mission) to ensure that this academic year goes smoothly. Therefore, I am at your service. You are more than welcome to send me a message at  if you have any questions.

I know that together we can achieve amazing things by changing the world, one student at a time.
