Mr. Steve Wright Introduction

Teaching assignment:  8th grade U.S. History 

 

Basic Information:

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!

 

Education: 

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.

 

Coaching:

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!
