Jacksboro ISD welcomes Wesley

As students begin the new school year, there’s a new face in Jacksboro ISD’s administration.

Wade Wesley is now serving as the assistant superintendent and curriculum director.

Wesley started with the district July 1 after serving as the superintendent at Happy ISD for three years. He has been in education for 28 years having served as a teacher, coach and principal.

He said he took the position in Jacksboro because he and his wife, Micki Wesley have lived apart for the last year and half due to their jobs.

“I took the superintendent position in Happy and my wife who had worked as the Region 9 director of curriculum took a job with Region 16 in Amarillo,” Wesley said. “Well, they weren’t utilizing her skills so she went back to Region 9 as the accountability director.”

The couple now lives in Jacksboro which also brings them closer to their two adult children who live in the Metroplex and Temple.

Wesley said he first experiences in working with curriculum came while he served as the junior high principal then later the high school principal in Petrolia.

“We I came the school district was unacceptable at the time and within three years, the junior high became an exemplary campus,” he said. “That was my first dealings with accountability and curriculum. We continued that for the next seven years at the junior high and high school.”
