Nate Wheeler is blessed to be a part of Wellman-Union.  Mr. Wheeler was previously the Superintendent at WCISD for four years. At WCISD, he and his team were able to promote new growth in long-term planning, education, enrollment, funding, and a family-oriented school culture. Prior to Whiteface, he served as the Assistant Superintendent at Plains ISD 2016-2019, the assistant secondary principal at Plains High School from 2015-2016, and as teacher/coach at Seagraves ISD from 2007-2015. Nate was raised in Seminole and Levelland, received his Bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University in 2006 and his Master’s degree in 2015 and Superintendent’s certification in 2018, both from Lamar University. Nate’s wife, Kyna, was formerly employed at the Region 17 Education Service Center in Lubbock as an Education Specialist in Literacy and Director of Curriculum and Instruction at WCISD to further support the staff and students reach higher levels of achievement. The Wheeler’s have two children: a son, Gage and a daughter, Sadie who are extremely happy to be Wildcats!


The Wheeler’s strongly agree with the District's vision and commitment to educate the young people of our community to become productive members of our constantly changing society. Likewise, we agree with WUCISD’s educational philosophy of the importance of providing an exemplary education community, where all students will be provided opportunities for the development of essential academic skills and far beyond these essentials skills to think logically, independently, creatively, and communicate effectively. As a life-long West Texas resident, Mr. Wheeler is excited to build long-term relationships within our community, based upon open communication and mutual trust, in order to continually define Wellman-Union CISD as a prestigious educational family. Working as a team, he believes we can produce sustainable change, embedded in our culture, to bolster morale and generate enthusiasm while ensuring our students, staff, and community persistently obtain new levels of success, as we strive to live up to the strong traditions and legacy Wellman-Union CISD is known for.
