It's an absolute honor and pleasure to begin my administrative career at Walnut Grove School. It is a wonderful and loving community that desires the best for its students. I am here to support you in making them successful citizens.
I grew up in Hazel Green, Alabama. I have been blessed to serve this community for 23 years as a third grade teacher, reading specialist, and now as an administrator. I spent a brief time preparing for this opportunity in Harvest, AL at Endeavor Elementary. It’s truly a blessing to be back where I began my career in education.
On a personal note, I am married to my wonderful husband Timothy who is a pastor in Shelbyville, TN and my best friend. We have been married for 26 years. He is a great support system and is always willing to help me complete any school tasks. I could not serve this community well without his support and assistance. We love people! So, we serve, we love, and we care.
I am committed to making sure that every student at Walnut Grove has the opportunity to learn at high levels. I will work hard to make that happen by establishing rich relationships, cultivating a caring and supportive environment, and making sure we have the highest quality personnel to educate our students. Please know that I am always available to hear your concerns and ways in which we can enhance our wonderful school.
Mrs. Yolanda Wright
