Jeff Wright is someone that I've known for almost 10 years and he happens to be one of those people that, as I've gotten to know him I've learned to not only like him more but also to respect him more. That respect is based in the job that he does and the way he does it. Being in the field of Education is no cake walk these days. Jeff though is able to not only deal with the logistics and political aspects of his job, but he also has never lost his core love and empathy for the families he serves. He instills HOPE in people who associate with him and his Why Not attitude is down right infectious. Listen to our conversation for yourself and see how it changes your Frame of Reference about the job today's educators have to do.
