Biographical Sketch

Jose Maria Bernal was born on March 1, 1927 in San Antonio, Texas to Antonia Juarez and Jose Maria Bernal. Bernal, better known as Joe J. Bernal, was one of nine children and was raised by his mother after his father died when he was eleven years old. Joe grew up in San Antonio's west side, he attended J.T. Brackenridge Elementary School and graduated from Sidney Lanier High School in 1944. He served in the armed forces (Infantry and Air Force) during World War II and was honorably discharged with the rank of Sergeant on December 9, 1946.

After coming back from the war, Bernal took advantage of the G.I. Bill and enrolled at Trinity University where he graduated with a BA in Sociology in 1950. After graduating he worked as a teacher in the Kosciusko Independent School District in Wilson County, Texas from 1950 to 1951. Bernal's teaching career continued for another thirteen years, he taught at Burleson Elementary School in the Edgewood Independent School District for three years and then ten years at Crockett Elementary School in the San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD).

While teaching, Bernal also pursued post-graduate education and was granted a Master's in education (M.Ed.) with a minor field in social work from Our Lady of the Lake College in 1954. In addition to teaching, Bernal also worked for four years, 1965-1969, as a social worker with the Inman Christian Center (ICC).

Bernal's legislative career began in the mid-sixties when he was elected State Representative in 1964. He served one term as Representative (1965-1967) and then ran for the State Senate. He won the election to represent District 26, Bexar County including the city of San Antonio.

Bernal's legislative accomplishments demonstrate his commitment to education and advocating for the interest of the elderly, minorities and other disadvantaged individuals. While a State Representative he authored the bill to extend elderly assistance benefits to non-citizens who had lived for more than 25 years in the U.S. His accomplishments as a Senator include authoring legislation to: authorize Texas' first minimum wage law; the Texas State Teachers Association (TSTA) 45-minute teacher planning time; the creation of state supported kindergarten for some five-year olds; the state's first bilingual education act in 1969; establishing the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) as well as the dental and nursing schools in San Antonio; a resolution to ratify the lowering of the voting age to eighteen; and authoring the Senate bill to provide funds for a Criminal Justice Council (SB 841).

In addition to his duties as legislator, Bernal also worked as Executive Director for the Guadalupe Community Center (GCC) from March 1969 to February 1970 and then for the Commission for Mexican American Affairs (CMAA), a community based agency of the Archdiocese of San Antonio, from March 1970 to January 1975. Later, Bernal went to work as the Director of the Bilingual Cost Analysis Project of the Intercultural Development Research Association (IDRA) from 1974 to circa 1976. In 1979 he became Region VI Regional Director of ACTION (a federal agency which coordinated volunteer opportunities).

Bernal married Mary Esther Martinez in 1956, the same year Mary Esther graduated from Our Lady of the Lake College with a Bachelor of Music. Mary Esther shared Joe's interest in education, she has worked as a teacher, a bilingual specialist (1969), Director of the Cultural Arts Center (1975), and other administrative positions with the San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD). Mary Esther and Joe had four children: Richard Cyril (1957), Patrick Charles (1958), Bernard Christopher (1966), and Rebecca Celeste (1970).

In 1978 Bernal earned a Ph.D. in Cultural Foundations in Education from the University of Texas at Austin. His dissertation focused on bilingual bicultural education and is titled A Study of Bilingual Bicultural Education: Contrasting Influences on Texas Legislators with Results of an Attitudinal Survey of the Members of the 64th Legislature.

After he lost the race for the Texas Senate against Frank Lombardino in 1974, Bernal decided to go back to the field of education. He worked as a principal in the Edgewood Independent School District for five years and then went to the Harlandale Independent School District in San Antonio, where he retired as assistant superintendent.

Dr. Bernal was elected to the Texas State Board of Education (SBOE) in 1996 and re-elected in 2000 and 2002. He served in all Board committees: Planning, School Finance/Permanent School Fund and Instruction. He also chaired the Committee on Instruction and served as Vice-Chair of the 15-member Board from 2001 to 2003.

In February 2006, Dr. Bernal was interviewed in San Antonio, Texas for the VOCES Oral History Project (formerly the U.S. Latino and Latina WWII Oral History Project). The next year, 2007, the Texas Senate passed a Senate Resolution (SR 370) on the occasion of Bernal's 80th birthday and in recognition of his service to the state.

Then in 2009, Mary Esther and Joe received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) at the 25th Annual Awards Gala in San Antonio for their commitment to improve and increase opportunities for the Latino community.

The Dr. Joe J. Bernal Middle School, part of San Antonio's Northside Independent School District (NISD), is scheduled to open in August 2014.
