About Mr. Wright

TEACHING: This is my second year at West Bronx Academy for the Future and I am excited to be back.  I am a special education teacher focused on math.  This year I am teaching 6th and 8th grade math.  
EDUCATION: I received my bachelors degree from Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida.  I received an MBA from Iona College in New Rochelle, NY and in June I received my Masters in Education from Hunter College, NYC.
EXPERIENCE:  Prior to becoming a teacher I was an Operations manager at IBM for 20 years and prior to that I was a vice president and chief credit officer for North Fork Bank in NYC.  During all of this time I worked as a teaching tennis professional on weekends working with children of all ages to help them learn to play tennis and improve their game.
HOBBIES: I still compete in senior tennis and platform tennis competitions.  In the winter, when I am not playing platform tennis, I am usually skiing in Vermont with my family.  I am constantly trying to become fluent in Spanish.
