Teaching assignment: 8th grade U.S. History
Hi! My name is Mr. Stephen Wright. I am 35 years young! I live in South Bend with my wife, Becky, and our two beautiful children, Mia (7) and Paxton (1). We have a dog, Rosy. I enjoy being outdoors in summer, playing golf and working in the yard. In the winter, I love to watch basketball. But mostly, I love spending time with friends and family. I will be your child’s U.S. History or Economics teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. This will be my 12th year teaching and I’m excited to make it my best year yet!
I grew up in Cassopolis, MI where I attended Cassopolis Public Schools from Kindergarten through graduation. I knew from a young age that I wanted to become a teacher, like my father, so I enrolled in Western Michigan University. In December of 2005, I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Arts in Secondary Education in History with a minor in Social Studies. I received my Master’s Degree in The Art of Teaching from Marygrove College in spring 2009.
I love basketball! I’ve been a coach at Edwardsburg for 11 years. Six of those were at the freshmen and junior varsity levels. Five years ago, I began my career as the Varsity coach. I am looking forward to this upcoming season. Please come out and support our Eddies!
