Principal's Corner

Principal's Corner
 
Principal Lynne Wright  
 
Hello Oakridge Students!
 
I am so happy and excited!  Do you know why?  Let me tell you…  I am lucky enough to be the principal at Oakridge Elementary School. 
 
I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself.  I have a feeling that we have a lot in common.  For instance, when I was a little girl, my dad was in the Army and my mom was a teacher.  We moved around a lot.  When I was in third grade, we moved to Arlington.  I went to Taylor Elementary School, Williamsburg Middle School, and graduated from Yorktown High School.  After high school, I went to college at James Madison University.  I liked it so much that I stayed and earned my masters degree in special education.  But, I missed Arlington so much that I moved back and began teaching at Williamsburg Middle School.   After several years, I transferred to Taylor Elementary School.  It was a lot of fun teaching where I was once a student.  Maybe some of you will do the same thing someday.
 
I liked going to school so much that I never stopped!  In 2005, I earned my doctorate degree from the University of Virginia.  Shortly afterwards, I became the Assistant Principal at Oakridge - my favorite place to learn and go to school.
 
Now I’m the principal and I couldn’t think of a better place to be.  We are going to have so much fun learning and growing together.  I can’t wait to visit you in class, at recess, and during lunch.  We’re going to have a great time together at the Blacktop Ball, Valentine’s Day Dance, and Spring Fling.  At these events, you will probably meet my husband and children.  Like you, they are both a lot of fun.  They love hearing about the great children who attend Oakridge.
 
I look forward to seeing you soon!                                                                                            

Love,

Dr. Lynne Wright
