Hello, My name is Portia Wright!
I hail from Maryland, just outside of our nation’s capital, but I’m not a Redskins fan. I come from a long line of educators but education was simply not my first passion. It took me a while to get into education, but after 5 years of working in Horry County Schools, I can honestly say that I could never imagine doing anything else. My goal is to make the reflection room a place where students can ponder positive choices and decisions that will bring about long term changes in their academic and personal lives.
I have a bachelors in journalism from the University of Phoenix and a masters in psychology from Grand Canyon University both of which I attained later in life, I am the perfect example that learning should never stop and anything is possible with dedication and determination. That is the message I tell my 3 boys every day.
When not at school I am teaching dance at Myrtle Beach School of Performing Arts because dance is my other passion. It’s gonna be a great year, SEAHAWKS SOAR!
