Hello! I am Katrina Wright, proud educator of Aviston Elementary School sixth & seventh grade readers and writers. My husband Justin and son Urban reside in Breese, IL. We love to read, travel and cheer on the Cardinals.
Growing up with my mother as a teacher, reading has always been part of our lives. My sister and I created a neighborhood summer school in our garage starting around 5th grade. It was then when we realized that tutoring and babysitting could be lucrative. :) When I say lucrative, I use the term loosely, meaning to be to rich in happiness.
My education began at Germantown Elementary which was followed by high school at Mater Dei, where I became increasingly interested in sports. A successful four years at Mater Dei led me to a full ride athletic volleyball scholarship to Southeast Missouri State University. After many late nights on a bus, triple-day practices and eight semesters of exams, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary and Middle School Education. Later, I continued my education and earned my Masters in Administration at SIUE.
As I begin my eighth year of teaching, but my third year at Aviston, I couldn't be more thankful for where I am in my life. Aviston has been nothing short of wonderful to me, giving me a classroom full of inquisitive thinkers. To my NEW class of 7th graders, welcome. I cannot wait to get to know you!
