About the Author

Author Info

"Finally, a book on education, written by a true expert in education, an actual classroom teacher. The author, DJ Wright, wants teachers to have a voice, and what a voice she has. This teacher lays the smack-down on education theory, leadership, and what she refers to as common conformity education programs like College and Career Ready and Common Core. She explains where American education funding really goes, and the types of people who make the decisions that affect American teachers and students. Her section on education leadership contains stories of school administrators who sexually harassed her, used school hours to skateboard up and down school hallways, and funneled asbestos into her classroom. However, she makes a point of not playing victim, but instead, points out the devastating consequences these "leaders" have on American students. BTW, did you know that in America, you can become a superintendent in only 25 days, no classroom teaching experience necessary?" HenZen

"As I read D.J. Wright’s book, I couldn’t help but think about its relevance. It is well researched and its authority is based on the fact that the author writes from inside experience, bringing life to this memoir with powerful examples. Autobiography of An American Teacher is both informative and thought-provoking, a revolutionary book that explores a professional teacher’s experience and asks tough questions. It’s a must-read for education experts and everyone who wants to gain insight about effective education leadership." Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite

"D. J. Wright has truly exposed the corruption and failure of educational leadership. Supported by documented facts, the Great American Teacher finally has someone speaking up for the educational system and its students." ~ Mr. Gilbert

"This is an important book for all teachers and parents. It addresses concerns we all have about the education of the children we teach and the 'system' we must follow. Well written and thoroughly researched. This book uses real life experiences and well researched data to enlighten us about the REAL concerns with education in American today." ~ Kim Marie Has

"A bold truth and well stated." ~ Angela Miller

Finally, I have a voice. After years of abuse, harassment, lies, incompetence, and threats I have a voice; the voice of an American teacher.

Ms. Wright has been a full-time secondary teacher for over 18 years. Autobiography of an American Teacher is her first published work. She is an ardent activist for teaching and learning, and believes removing the non-teachers from education leadership is absolutely essential to improving American K-12 education. She earned her master's degree from Northern Arizona University and bachelor's degree from East Carolina University.
