Hello! Thank you for viewing the website!
My name is Kayla Wright. I am excited to be teaching math in fifth grade. This is my eleventh year teaching in Polk County. I taught 1st grade for 5 years and 3rd grade for 5 years. 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. We have an 8 year old daughter, Aily, a 6 year old son, Benson, a 2 year old daughter, Arlyn and a baby due in December. 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,
