Superintendent J.A. Gonzalez, Ed.D.


“I am fascinated with the art of teaching and learning,” he said. “Everyone is some kind of smart —be it mathematical, verbal, kinesthetic or musical. We all have a particular learning style and it is our job, as educators, to help our students discover their talents and to build on their natural skill sets.”

A former state finalist for Principal of the Year and a participant in The Principals’ Center at Harvard University, Dr. Gonzalez has a wealth of experience and a passion for teaching. He has taught in the Educational Leadership Department as a Practicing Lecturer at the University of Texas-Pan American.

Dr. Gonzalez officially became McAllen ISD’s Superintendent on August 4, 2016. He had served as the District’s Interim Superintendent since February.
