Meet the Assistant Principal of Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School


    My name is Gladys L. Wright and I am excited to introduce myself as the new Assistant Principal of Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary school, where every child is a SCHOLAR!

    I completed my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education at Stillman College, my Masters and Education Specialist degrees at The University of West Alabama and my School Leadership Certification at The University of Alabama. I have a total of 28 years of experience which includes: fifth grade teacher, first grade teacher, K-5 interventionist, Friendship Baptist Church Summer Camp director, instructional coach, TCS Summer School site facilitator and recently Assistant Principal.

    I am married to the love of my life, Lamont L. Wright who is a veteran employee of the Tuscaloosa City Schools System and The University of Alabama. We have two sons who are products of the TCS family and currently attend the University of Alabama: Caleb (22) Engineering major and Conner (18) Architecture major. As a family, we love to travel, cook together, and play board games.

     Together, we can ensure that every scholar has opportunities to excel, while at the same time, helping them build positive relationships that will last a lifetime. I am extremely blessed to be a part of an amazing team of teachers, staff, students, families, administrators and community partners who believe that while “growing together” we can all SOAR!


    Go Falcons!!!
