Dear Families, 
We are excited to welcome Sagrario Argüelles as Head of Primary Years for the 2023/2024 school year!

Sagrario is a passionate professional with more than thrity years of experience in a wide variety of educational settings. She is an inquiring, lifelong learner that believes students learn best when they are empowered and feel ownership of their learning. She is bilingual in Spanish and English, and has a deep understanding of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. 

Early in her educational journey, Sagrario worked in different schools in México, such as Alexander Bain and the American School Foundation. She held different teacher and administrative roles, such as lower school teacher, Primary Years Programme (PYP) coordinator and Academic Dean. She began her career in the United States in 2008 at Escuela Bilingüe Internacional in Oakland, California, where she implemented the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and oversaw the Middle Years Programme (MYP) implementation. She held the roles of Assistant Head, PYP Coordinator and Director of Curriculum and Learning for preK-8 grades. In 2018, Sagrario moved to Austin, Texas, where she joined The Magellan International School as the Head of Lower School.

Her passion for education has also allowed her to do significant work for the IB as a workshop leader, consultant, school evaluation and accreditation leader, and IB field representative in charge of the quality of the workshops given in the Americas. Sagrario has also been instrumental in the implementation of new IB services for schools at a global level, developing a quality curriculum in schools. She has sought to share best practices wherever she has taught, presenting at educational conferences such as the IB Regional Conference and the California Association of Independent Schools Conference.

Sagrario is a true believer that as educators, we need to nurture each child’s love of learning by cultivating academic excellence, emotional intelligence, and social engagement. 

Please join me in welcoming Sagrario to the Creation Village family. She looks forward to meeting you and your family in August!

In His Grace,

Derek Cummings
