Hello! Thank you for viewing the website!
My name is Kayla Wright. I am excited to be teaching math in third grade. This is my tenth year teaching in Polk County. The first 5 years, I spent teaching first grade! I spent my early school days in Buchanan, Georgia and graduated in 2002 from Haralson County High School.
I married my high school sweetheart, Doug, in October 2005 and we currently live in Rockmart. He is also a teacher here at VWES.
I graduated from the State University of West Georgia in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education degree and also in 2010 with a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education. Three months before graduating with my Master's degree, my daughter, Aily Lorene was born. Then, 18 months later, my son, Benson Douglas, was born, then in January 2016, our baby girl, Arlyn Marie, was born. I have plans to go back for my specialist degree but it may be many years before I plan that adventure.
Welcome to Van Wert Elementary School where we treat others like family and children come first! I believe that children need to feel welcomed into a loving environment where they are respected and shown how to have fun and learn something along the way!
Looking forward to an exciting year,
