There is an old African Proverb that states “it takes a village to raise a child.” This has been my driving force while parenting as I am blessed to be the mother of a beautifully blended family. My name is Desiree Wright, a native of St. Croix, US Virgin Islands and I have been a resident of Clayton County for 24 years. As the baby of a family of 6 who a Special Education teacher raised, I learned early how to fight to ensure the needs of students are met. It is my goal to work to ensure that all children are afforded equal education regardless of demographics or socioeconomic background.
