Assistant Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  What a honor is it to continue to serve as the Assistant Principal here at Gerdes Junior High School.  I am eager to continue to work with Mrs. Meshell, as well as the rest of our faculty and staff to advance the achievement of our students.  Working together, I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a rigorous and enriching learning experience. 

The middle school years are important and critical times for students.  What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and development.  My goal is to continue to facilitate a safe and respectable environment, conducive for student achievement.  I am confident that our school will continue to be a place where our students can learn and grow academically and socially.


If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Go Eagles!!!

What a privilege it is to work for Luling ISD!! I am honored to serve the students, staff and community of GJH.

This year will begin my 10th year in education. I’m certain this will be the BEST.  Previously, I taught choir in San Antonio, Ft. Worth, and Wichita Falls, Texas, earning a GRAMMY nomination for Music Education in the Classroom.  

Our motto is simple. We are Gaining Excellence by Rigorously Developing Exceptional Students.  Excellence is the expectation for all who enter our doors. The faculty and staff are eager to welcome and receive their students each and every day.

Here at GJH, students will be challenged academically and educated on how to become upstanding citizens of their communities.  With our district vision in mind, we promise to “Educate Every Child, Every Day”.

 If I can be of assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
