Mrs. Charla Wright-Staten
Welcome to Christene C. Moss Elementary School! It is with great pleasure to introduce myself to you. I am Mrs. Charla Wright-Staten and I have the honor of being the Principal at Moss Elementary! I have had the great pleasure of serving the community of Christene C. Moss Elementary since August 2010 as the Assistant Principal. I am product of Fort Worth ISD in which I attended Greenbriar Elementary, Glencrest Middle, Forest Oak Middle, and O.D. Wyatt High School. I am proud to be the wife to Mr. Jules Staten, Sr. and the blessed mother to two beautiful children, Caitlyn and Jules, Jr.
I graduated from Prairie View A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with Emphasis in Reading and a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction in Reading. In 2010, I received my Principal’s Certification from University of Texas in Arlington.
I’ve had the pleasure to teach third grade in Hempstead Independent School District for two years. After completing my Master’s Degree, I knew that it was time to return to my home and so that I could impact the students within FWISD. During my tenure at Harlean Beal Elementary School, I served in the capacity as a Fourth Grade Reading Teacher and a Literacy Coach. In 2010, I was honored to be named as the Assistant Principal at Christene C. Moss Elementary School.
As I embark on this new journey as your Principal, it is my expectation that all students receive learning opportunities that will help them to develop into righteous, upright, and thoughtful learners. I am always here to serve you and my door is always open. If you ever have any questions, please feel free to see me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am excited to be the assistant principal at C.C. Moss Elementary school. I attended East Texas State University and then transitioned into the Texas A&M University system. I double majored in sociology counseling and guidance with a minor in elementary education counseling. I also have another minor in education administration for special education. After that, I began my career in education working for Dallas ISD in the year 2000. The year 2008 saw the beginning of my career as an administrator in Fort Worth ISD.
As Malcom X said, "Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today". It is my passion to help students prepare for the future today. I look forward to serving as part of the administrative team at Christene C. Moss Elementary.
