Principal Information 

Dr. Cynthia Carielo

Welcome to Golden Bear Country! My name is Cynthia Carielo, and I am proud to serve as the principal of Thomas Edison High School in the San Antonio Independent School District. I grew up in San Antonio, Texas and attended all SAISD schools. I began my education at Wilson Elementary, transitioned to Whittier Middle School and then finally graduated from Thomas Edison H.S. in 1995. I attended and earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin and earned both my master’s and doctorate from the University of Texas at San Antonio. I have served the SAISD community as a high school math teacher, a middle and high school curriculum and instruction coordinator, a high school assistant principal, and both an elementary and high school principal.

I consider myself a life-long learner and am passionate about learning new approaches and strategies which positively impact student success, teacher growth, and campus programming. As a recent Trinity School Design Network fellow, I sought to learn innovative ways to bridge and improve upon the various programs of our campus in order to develop a dynamic educational institution. I look forward to strengthening our community, our collaborative efforts, and our culture.
