Ashli Wright wins Rookie Teacher of the Year

Advanced Placement and Honors biology teacher Ashli Wright has been recognized as Rookie Teacher of the Year. She was “honored and excited” about her win.

“I still can’t believe it, I really wasn’t expecting it at all. I was honored just to be recognized by the teachers here, that’s when I really won,” Wright said.

Wright considers herself a hands-on teacher who embraces the use of technology in the learning environment.

“I would just like to thank everyone here, the entire science department. Every single teacher has been instrumental in my success and even Ms. Otero, she took a shot on a new teacher I hope I represent them well,” Wright said.
