Posted by: Judd Davis - bio | email

Red Level, AL (WSFA 12) - For teacher Rosalyn Wright, it's been quite a ride, and it's almost over.   After teaching in Red Level for 35 years, she's calling it quits at the end of this school year.  She's this week's Class Act.

The school's new principal nominated her for the award.   "She's an icon in the community," said principal Rodney Drish.  "She's taught everyone in this community.   We consider her the mother hen because of all her knowledge and she gets along with everyone."

Ms. Wright has spent 34 of her 35 years teaching kindergartners.  She says it's the perfect age for her.   "I enjoy watching the learn and grow and mature throughout the year," Wright said.   "It's a pleasure and joy to watch it."    She'll get to watch her little ones grow for one more year before she leaves the classroom for good.    "I will really miss the kids."   They'll miss her too.  Ms. Rosalyn Wright from Red Level Elementary School is a real Class Act.
