Mrs. Bright’s Profile
I recently retired as the Lower School Science Coordinator at King’s Ridge Christian School located in Alpharetta, Georgia. KRCS provides a developmentally appropriate education that fosters the growth of the whole child- academically, physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.
I was an educator for over 35 years during which I taught preschool through fifth grade in private and public schools in Kentucky, Maryland, and Georgia. I have a BS degree in early childhood education from EKU and a masters degree in education from Hood College. In addition, I have supervised student teachers, led workshops, and developed curriculum materials.
I am a founding teacher at KRCS. What a gift it was to watch the school grow in God’s hands! For five years, I taught math (to groups in grades first through fifth) and then I taught second grade for eight years before leading the Lower School science department for seven years. It was truly a joy to work at a K-12 school where you can see your students mature into amazing young adults.
As I continue to work with children in other settings, my goal is to inspire children to be life-long learners by nurturing intellectual curiosity. I place a high priority on developing creativity and problem solving skills. I also believe vocabulary and writing skills are key to academic success. I strive to provide a safe, nurturing environment and to challenge each child while ensuring he/she experiences success. Above all, I want to be a blessing to each family and to glorify God in all I say and do.
When time allows, I look forward to jazzercise, lettering, reading, working in my garden, and travel. My husband and I enjoy visiting bed and breakfasts around the country.
