Bridge Street Middle School Principal Jessica Broski-Birch commended Bright for being a dedicated staff member. She said Bright cares about the Red Devil students.
"Mrs. Bright's compassion and 'extra mile' is noticed by all,” Broski-Birch said. “Each student who has the pleasure to interact with Mrs. Bright knows that she cares about them as human beings, and she greets them each day with a warm, smiling face."
Bright said she is proud to be a member of the Bridge Street family, and she noted that she has formed a particularly strong bond with a Red Devil staff member.
"I feel grateful to work at a school such as Bridge Street Middle School and with a team member as supportive as Dara Robrecht,” Bright said. “We work together to do what's best for our school and students, and we make each other smile every day."
