Office of the Superintendent



Donna Pessel

Welcome to the Wolfe City ISD Website!  

To all of the families and community members of Wolfe City ISD, it is an honor and a privilege to serve as your Superintendent.  I am entering my 20th year in education with 13 of those being in the classroom teaching a tested subject area.  I have also served as an After School Site Coordinator,  Intervention Coordinator, Instructional Coach, District Testing Coordinator, State and Federal Programs Director, Curriculum Director, and Assistant Superintendent.   I have spent my career in small rural school districts where I have always worn many hats and held many duties and responsibilities.  I am a lifelong learner, and I believe that we all should be striving toward growth every single day.  My educational philosophy is simply that every decision should be made based on what is best for kids!   

As your Superintendent, I am looking forward to the 2023-2024 school year where we will focus on the theme “Growing Together”. Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to not only student growth, but also our own personal and professional growth in order to foster student achievement and provide the best educational experience possible for students.  All of us here at Wolfe City, no matter our role, are here to support students and help them to achieve all of their goals as well as to help them grow into productive citizens.  

As we start our journey of growth together,  it is my goal to support all of you this year while doing what is best for the students of our great district.   I look forward to forming relationships and partnering with all of you in order to work toward a better future for our students.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, my door is always open!
