• My name is Karen Wright and I am excited to be a FDES star.  This is my 18th year of teaching and 8th as a Gifted Resource Teacher.  Prior to joining LCPS, I worked in Henrico County just outside Richmond.  My family moved to the area after my husband's job moved him to Leesburg. 


    I am a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT) I graduated from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) and earned my Gifted endorsement from UVA.  I have my Masters of Education in Teacher Leadership and am also ESL endorsed. 


    I have three children (Avery-11, Grayson-8 and Davis-6) that keep me very busy outside of school with their activities.  However, when I have some free time I enjoy cooking & meal planning, reading, browsing Home Goods, and catching up on my DVR. 


    I am a life-long learner and excited to share my passion for creative and higher-level thinking skills with the students at Frederick Douglass. If you have any questions about the Gifted Program please feel free to email me anytime: karen.wright@lcps.org
