Satoia Wright, a native of Ohio, is a Middle and Secondary Mathematics Educator with nine years of teaching experience in various communities across the United States. After earning her Bachelor’s degree from Syracuse University, she spent time working for educational nonprofit organizations as a classroom translator and academic tutor. These experiences solidified her decision to become an educator and earn her Masters in Teaching from Relay Graduate School of Education.
Satoia considers herself a life-long learner and recently received a Fulbright Scholarship from the U.S. Department of Education. Her passion lies in cultivating and presenting a curriculum that transcends content-specific skills to challenge students to “Read The World” through mathematics as they investigate and develop solutions to real-world phenomena. Satoia believes this pedagogical approach helps develop critically minded students who are more equipped to engage with and understand the multiple dimensions of this pluralistic society.
