Betty comes to Charles Wright Academy most recently as the Upper School Associate Director at Lakeside School in Seattle, WA. Prior to that, Betty spent 15 years teaching chemistry and serving as an administrator in independent schools around the country. She brings a deep commitment and passion for working with adolescents and a track record of building mission-focused programs in independent schools. The word that comes boldly to mind about the Charles Wright community is “possibility”— a poetic reflection of the lens through which we view and educate children, seeking to nurture and help each student harness their potential in a world of possibility. She is humbled and honored to take on this important work in partnership with the Charles Wright community of students, families, and colleagues.
