Mr. Gabriel J. Wiley was born on January 31st in his beloved Moss Point, Mississippi, and is a proud graduate of the Moss Point High School class of 1990. Contrary to a number of his colleagues, Mr. Wiley’s post high school studies did not begin within the field of education. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Economics from Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University in December of 1995. Upon the completion of his undergraduate studies, Mr. Wiley immediately began his professional career as an Assistant Store Manager with Wal-Mart Stores, Incorporated and was later selected to travel the southeastern United States as a Store Set-up Supervisor. Early interactions with people from all walks of life through his travels proved to be an invaluable experience for Mr. Wiley. He learned early on the extreme significance of exhibiting a high level of professionalism at all times, as well as making every effort to provide superlative customer service to all; two professional characteristics which remain at the forefront of his daily routine.

    Having been influenced by so many positive educational role models early on as a student, to include family members, Mr. Wiley decided to change careers and follow what he determined would provide more fulfillment on a professional level. In August of 2000, he began serving the first five years of his educational career as a mathematics instructor at Glades Central Community High School in Belle Glade, Florida. He also spent time serving as Athletic Director, Boys and Girls Basketball Coach, and received the honor of being chosen as Teacher of the Year in 2000. In 2007, he received his Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree in Educational Leadership from Florida Atlantic University, and as a result of his hard work he was bestowed the honor of being selected as a member of the renowned Golden Key Honor Society.

    After eight years as an educator in Palm Beach County, Florida, Mr. Wiley relocated to Clayton County where he served for one year as a high school mathematics instructor at North Clayton High School and subsequently transitioned to Henry County as Mathematics Co-Department Chair and 7th Grade Mathematics Instructor at Henry County Middle School. During his tenure of service with HCMS, he dedicated his efforts to multiple leadership responsibilities to include but not limited to the Better Seeking Team, Data Team, Discipline Committee Chair, and the Professional Development Committee.  His tireless commitment to the aforementioned committees during his two year tenure at Henry County Middle School afforded him the opportunity for promotion to the position of Assistant Principal of Woodland High School during the 2010-2011 school year.

    As an administrator with Woodland High School, some of Mr. Wiley’s primary responsibilities included overseeing the Mathematics Department, and providing 504 Individual Accommodation Plans for students. A year later, he transferred to Woodland Middle School where he successfully served from 2011 to 2013.  As a middle school Assistant Principal, Mr. Wiley served as Mathematics Administrator, 504 Chair, MTSS/SST Chair, and SIEP & Extended Mathematics Support Administrator. Additionally, he also devoted time to numerous county initiated committees such as the inaugural class of the S.M.I.L.E. (Science, Mathematics Initiative for Learning Enhancement) Cohort, the SLO (Student Learning Objective) Development Committee, as well as 2012-2013 Principal’s Advisory Committee. His most notable accomplishment as an Assistant Principal came in May of 2013, when he was selected as one of six administrators chosen to represent Henry County at the NASSP (National Association of Secondary School Principals) seminar. Here, he and five other administrators were charged with the invaluable task of performing Principal oriented tasks during an entire day of intense training.

    Mr. Wiley is the devoted father of his pride and joy, D’Allo Wiley. His foundation encompasses a deeply rooted spiritual base and a highly supportive cast of family, friends, and colleagues. Mr. Wiley is a twenty plus year member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated. He loves sports, any type of dessert, and traveling. As he embarks upon another year as principal of Austin Road Middle School, Mr. Wiley remains humbled, gracious, and even more focused on providing an abundance of opportunities in a learning-focused environment crafted to meet the needs of both teachers and students. LET’S GO JAGUARS!!!
