Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Alston Middle School Physical Education, Health and Wellness! I am excited for a new year at AMS and ready to teach some new activities that we learned over the summer training.
A little bit about myself: I was born and raised in Western Michigan, attended Hope College in Holland, Michigan, where I studied Physical Education, Health, Biology and Psychology. As a student, I competed in Cross Country, and Track and played Volleyball and Basketball. I am married to Dave Wright. We have 3 adult children who are married and 3 grandsons. Our careers have taken our family to a variety of places; from Michigan, Illinois, England and South Carolina. I have had the pleasure of teaching PE, Science and Religious Education as well as coaching a variety of sports in all these places for over 30 years.
I love to travel anywhere in the world, especially getting off of the main tourist routes. Some of my favorite places to explore are in the UK, Europe and remote areas of the U.S. I enjoy spending time on the beach taking walks, biking along the shore and swimming. I enjoy playing most sports, learning about new ones from other countries, and I especially like watching Clemson Football.
