Principal's Message

I’m Wanda Fryer, Principal of Gonzales Junior High School. I know that most children don’t start on the same playing field, but are expected to know the rules of the game. This is the driving force behind my passion for educators. Teachers become the COACHES. They are the ones helping Kids to understand the game. Each child, whether he/she comes in with a clean and perfect uniform or comes in with a dirty uniform and wornout shoes. The dynamic, passionate educator takes the team they are given and is able to transform ANY student into a PLAYER on the field of LIFE…
I am proud to serve as principal of GJHS. I stand on the shoulders of many members in my family before me who chose education as a lifelong profession. I graduated from GHS in 1984 and Southwest Texas State University in 1989. My teaching career began in Waelder, TX-Waelder ISD, and Houston, TX-Sheldon and Alief ISD from 1989-2001. I completed my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from Texas Southern University in 1999. I then became an Administrator in Gonzales, in August 2001.
