About MeBarbara ODonnell Wright

I chose to enter teaching as a second career because education has always been a passion of mine.  I have a B.S. in Psychology with a minor in Spanish.  I also
have a Masters of Business Administration.  My corporate experience includes Consumer Affairs and Customer Service.  These experiences enabled me to delve into people's needs and to analyze how the operation or product could be improved.  Relationship management is a key component of success in these two fields.

I a
m aBarbara ODonnell Wrightctively involved in the Bushkill Elementary PTA.  In addition to serving as an officer, I plan and run many of our evMath Nightents.
 I work closely with our Math Specialist to implement Family Math Night. 
Here, students and their families can enjoy different math stations together.  Family Science Night is another, similar event.  I research and implement hands-on science activities for the children.  I work with our teachers to coordinate teacher-led science stations.  In addition, I work with members of the community to bring interesting science experiences to the event.

Serving on the PTA has enabled me to partner with our principal and other members of the school's administration.  I help to garner the resources needed for school events.  This may include the recruitment of volunteers, solicitation of donations or the actual purchase of supplies.  As an officer, I am involved in setting the annual budget fok our PTA.
