Dear Wolfe City Community and Family,
Welcome to another new school year. The 2018-19 school year promises to be a great one. I would like to take this opportunity to say I am honored and excited to be selected as your next Superintendent of Schools in Wolfe City ISD. Since being here, I have learned the tradition of excellence that exists is due to the wonderful people of our community and the hard work of our students and staff.
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little but about myself and my family. My wife Carie is a nurse at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, working in the transplant unit. We have two boys, Oscar (Junior at WCHS) and Max (Freshman at WCHS). My family is moving to Wolfe City within the month from Melissa, Texas, and cannot wait to make this our permanent home. As for me, this is my 21st year in education, having served as a science teacher, coach, district at-risk administrator, and a campus administrator at all three levels. I believe in authentic communication, transparency, teamwork, hard work, and building relationships. I take very seriously that you have entrusted the young people of this community to our care and expect our wonderful staff to give their best day every day, starting with me.
My transition period has been brief thus far, so I will be sure to update this page more in the coming weeks. Again, I aim to serve this community well and make every decision based upon “What is best for the Kids?”
Anthony R. Figueroa
