John Wright 
Special Education Teacher (Functional Classroom) @ CJHS

I graduated from F.C.H.S. in 1985. I decided to returned to college as a nontraditional student (Jan. 2007). I attended John A. Logan (2007-2008) and then transferred to Southern Illinois University (2009-2011). In May 2011, I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Special Education (LBS 1). I was hired by F.C.U.S.D. #168 that same month to teach in a functional classroom at C.J.H.S. ‚ÄčI have taught for 4 years in West Frankfort. To be able to teach in my hometown is a dream come true. I love what I do.            GO BIRDS!!!
