Miss LaMaiya Wright

Hello! My name is LaMaiya Wright and I am a first year 5th grade teacher at Sauk Elementary School. I am so excited to be back in Matteson School District 162 as a teacher because I was once a student! I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a bachelors degree in English and Elementary Education. When I  am not teaching, I enjoy shopping, reading, and spending time with my family. 


My goal for the 2022-2023 school year and beyond is to teach my students in the way that they best learn. My love for learning will hopefully develop a deeper passion for education in each and every one of my students. Fifth grade is a significant period of growth and development for children and my hope is that we learn and grow together as we embark on this journey.


I am looking forward to an amazing school year! I can be reached via email or the ClassDojo app.
