In January of 2009, Mrs. Wright was selected as the Reading Coach for Pinedale Elementary (2009-2012, School Grade C) where in her first year third grade students earned the district’s highest increase in Reading (38% to 52%). Mrs. Emanuel-Wright remained at Pinedale until she accepted an Assistant Principal position at Duval County Public School’s first, full-time virtual instruction program, Duval Virtual Instruction Academy (DVIA), where she was instrumental with generating and retaining enrollments (K-12), coining the school motto (Learning without Boundaries), and establishing several partnership which included Nova Southeastern University.

She then transitioned to Assistant Principal at Beauclerc Elementary (2013-2014, School Grade C), a dual-language elementary school, where she guided teachers through assessment and instruction and effective implementation of the gradual-release of responsibility model and the DCPS instructional framework.
On June 9, 2014, Mrs. Wright was appointed principal of Love Grove Elementary, where she will continue her focus on achieving academic success for every student, in every classroom, every day! She will accomplish the task through a collective concentration on the four pillars of excellent instruction designed to foster student success in every classroom when students are:

- Taking ownership of their learning
- Demonstrating understanding of the content
On a personal note, Mrs. Wright states that her greatest accomplishment is being a mother of three intelligent, energetic, and amazing children who are all Duval County Public School students!
