Dear John B Cary Families:
My name is Angela Wright and I am so excited begin my third year as the assistant principal of John B. Cary……home of the Cougars! The Cary “Cougar Nation” is beginning its fourth year as an Accredited School. Over the past 25 years, I have worked as a teacher and as an administrator, but I consider my most important job to be that of a child advocate. I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests. I will celebrate their successes, small and large. I will encourage them every day and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community. Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but I look forward to the work we will do together. As the old African Proverb states, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I am excited to see your children through your eyes. I love being able to share with you the great things they do throughout their days here at John B. Cary. My goal, which aligns with the school’s five CORE values are: Challenged, Healthy, Engaged, Safe/Supported, and Service-Driven. I am privileged to support hundreds of diverse learners each day and to hear “their story/ their dreams” and how we, as a school, will support them to reach for the stars! As a Cary team, all stakeholders, teachers, staff, faith groups, volunteers, community, and businesses partners will collaborate as a team to provide as many wrap-a-round services and opportunities to our student leaders possible!
I have to tell you that “MY” greatest achievement comes not professionally, but personally, as I am the mother of two grown, college graduates, Josh-George Mason (Major: IT/Engineering) and Cody-West Virginia Wesleyan (MEAC 2 Division Football Defensive Player: Major: Physics & Math). People often say I treat all children in my school as if they were my own. Please know that I will work tirelessly to ensure all children have the best possible experiences while at John B. Cary. Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to your wonderful community. I look forward to continuing supporting Mr. Powell’s vision for the school: College and/or Career Ready without Exception! All means ALL! COUGAR PRIDE!
