My name is Tracey Wright and this school year will be my 20th year of teaching - 16 of those years being in first grade! I graduated from Linfield College in 1996 with my elementary education degree and have since added a reading specialist endorsement from Portland State University. First grade is a magical year and there is nothing I find more rewarding than helping kids learn to read. I married my Mr. "Wright" in 1998 and we have three beautiful children - Cameron (12th grade), Tyler (10th grade), and Elie (8th grade). We love to travel and take long road trips through National Parks when we can. We have a goldendoodle dog named Dobby, a tabby cat named Molly, and 8 chickens in the backyard. Some of my favorite things to do include reading, gardening, and painting. I'm looking forward to a school year full of opportunities to learn and grow!
