Reading Interventionist

Ms. Katie Wright

My name is Katie Wright, and I am the reading coach at Riverwalk Academy.  I have a Master of Arts Degree in Elementary Education (K-8). My teaching experience spans pre-school through second grade. I have the pleasure of serving and coaching an amazing group of educators here at our school. I assist teachers in in all areas of literacy instruction, helping to ensure that effective literacy strategies are implemented with fidelity. I enjoy working with teachers and celebrating their students’ reading and writing growth. 


Interventionist and reading coach (k-3)


Ms. Christman graduated from The University of South Carolina with a degree in Early Childhood Education. Ms. Christman has been teaching for 7 years and has taught every grade from Pre K-3rd grade. First grade is by far her favorite grade! Ms. Christman's passion as a teacher is reading. She loves seeing a child's growth at the end of year and knowing she was a part of that.


Math interventionist and reading coach (4-5)


My passion for teaching lead me to obtaining a degree in elementary education. I have spent over 10 years in education where I have served in the elementary school setting and the preschool setting. I found my passion for teaching early childhood when I spent four years teaching at a preschool. I am proud to have been a facilitator at Riverwalk since its founding year. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. I love being on the lake, going to Hornets game, and reading in my spare time. I love teaching at a school where facilitators and learners are working together to build authentic learning experiences through project based learning.
