• Welcome to My Class! 

    I am looking forward to having a great school year, and I cannot wait to get to know everyone as the year goes on!  I will be teaching Language Arts and Social Studies.  This is my 17th year of teaching.  I taught in 5th and 6th grade at Merrillville Intermediate School for 16 years, and now I’ll teach 6th grade here at Marsh.  I’m so excited to be here at Marsh!


  • Meet Ms. Wright

    I grew up in Chicago, Illinois, so I have lived in this area my entire life. I have two older sisters and one younger brother.  I do not have any children, however, I have five nephews and one niece, and I am very close with my boyfriend's two daughters who are 9 and 17. I also have three cats, Phoenix, Lola, and Oliver.

    I am very active, and I try to run every day!  I love playing all kinds of sports for fun! In my free time, I like to go on hikes and kayak.  I also love to watch movies and cuddle up to a good book.  

    Since I am from Chicago, I LOVE to visit there as often as possible!  I have probably been to every museum and zoo about a million times in my life.  I am also a huge Chicago sports fan, so I like the Blackhawks and the Bulls, but I really have a passion for the Bears and the Cubs!
