Alisha Bright teaches sixth grade math and science. “I love doing dissections with sixth graders, because it’s the first time a lot of them have had the chance to look at an organism’s body parts in detail,” she explains. “They think that they’re going to be grossed out, but in the end most of them can’t put their scalpels down!”
Bright is a “retired military brat” who has lived in Texas and Germany, but has called the Pacific Northwest home for most of her life and graduated from Charles Wright. She was a college cheerleader and coach at Western Washington University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree.
Bright has coached the dance and tennis teams, and has advised the Girlz Club and Movie Club. One of her favorite moments at Charles Wright was dancing with faculty and staff during the football game’s halftime show at the school’s 50th birthday celebration.
Bright loves to dance, play tennis and listen to all kinds of music. Despite living in Washington most of her life, she has yet to go skiing or snowboarding.
