I have been in education for 25 years. I've taught junior high, middle school, high school, and college age students as well as teachers. I was an ESL instructional facilitator focusing on sheltered instruction strategies. I've worked on several ESL and Language Arts projects for the state of Texas. More recently I've been a Language Arts instructional facilitator and coordinator.
I'm a hands on teacher. I use numerous instructional best practices from cooperative learning, to graphic organizers, to t-charts to anticipation guides, to concept attainments, to hands on writing. I like to try different things in my classroom and keep my students on their toes.
I've been awarded numerous scholarships and awards, including Renaissance Teacher of the Month, YMCA Youth and Government Sponsor of the Year, Senior Honor Teacher of the Year, National Forensic League Diamond Teacher.
I have a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in English and Communications. I have two master's degrees. My first degree is in Communication Studies with an Emphasis in Rhetoric. The second is in Education Administration. In the state of Texas, I'm certified in 4-12 English Language Arts, 6-12 Speech, 4-12 ESL, 4-8 General Education ESL, and Administration.
I love to read, sew, and travel. I spent my summer traveling through castles, museums, and art galleries in England, Scotland, and Ireland. My husband and I participate in Renaissance festivals, and I create all of our costumes. Visit my Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/ReadandWritewithMrsWright?fref=ts
