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.

    Mrs. Bright,
    I enjoyed reading your profile. My daughter,Missy, shared this link so I may keep up with Amelia’s class life. We come to Kings Ridge every November for Grandparents Day and enjoy seeing what our grandchildren are learning and meeting their teachers and classmates. We live in Enon,OH so only see the children every 3 or 4 months. We know they are getting a wonderful education from people who really care. May God Bless you and this school year.
