About the Consultant

Dr. Rozalyne P. Wright, Education and Diversity Consultant, began her educational career in 1972 as a classroom teacher at R. B.

In 1989, she relocated to Highlands County, serving as Coordinator of Personnel and Director of Elementary and Federal Programs.   In March 2001, she was employed by the Collier County School Board as Director of Diversity prior to assuming responsibilities as Executive Assistant to the Superintendent.  She retired from the Collier County School District in 2008.  Feeling the desire to continue working, she accepted a position with a private company in August 2008, and, after a few months, decided to establish her own company.

In both Highlands and Collier Counties, she worked with equity and diversity issues, facilitated the development of districtwide Character Education programs, and developed and implemented teacher recruitment programs.  She has provided diversity training for the schools, school boards, civic organizations, and other groups in both communities, as well as at State conferences and in other school districts.  She also serves as guest speaker and soloist for various church and community organizations.

Lauderdale, Florida.

She has been actively involved with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) for more than 25 years, serving as Chair of the Florida Elementary and Middle School Committee and Chair of the Regional Communications Committee.  She has served as Chair of SACS Peer Review Teams for many years.  She was recognized for her service in SACS in 2005 when she was selected as the Florida Recipient of the 2005 John M. Davis Distinguished Educational Achievement Award.  This award is presented to those who have
