My name is Amber Wright and I am so excited to be teaching second grade this year! Hawthorn Academy has an amazing faculty, administration, and staff. I love it here! I attended Utah State University and majored in Elementary Education. I have completed my masters degree in Curriculum Design and Instruction as well as my STEM endorsement. I have wanted to be a teacher ever since I can remember and I truly believe that teaching is where I belong. I have an enthusiasm for learning and I love to share it with my students!
I grew up half in Utah and the other half in Idaho but I love traveling and I take the opportunity to travel as much as I can. So far I have been to Switzerland, Canada, France, Mexico, Italy, Costa Rica, Germany, and most of the states in the U.S. I hope that I will be able to go many more places in the future! I love seeing new places and immersing myself in learning the different cultures. I love sports and go to as many live sporting events as I can!
