PINE TREE ISD ANNOUNCES NEW THEATRE DIRECTOR AND FINE ARTS PROMOTION


Pine Tree ISD is proud to announce the district’s new theatre teacher Lisa Wright.  Mrs. Wright comes to Pine Tree ISD with 16 years of teaching experience in theatre, English, speech and finance. She has 35 years of performance and director experience in high school, college, community and musical theatre.  Mrs. Wright is married and has two children, Chloe and Timmy.

Lisa Wright 

Four years ago, my husband and I attended the premier Texas Shakespeare Festival Bard and Breakfast Theatre Educator Workshop in Kilgore under the direction of Meghan and Matthew Simpson and discovered for the first time that Texas had trees!!  The superior quality and family spirit at TSF is reminiscent of my summers at Ashland Shakespeare Festival in Oregon, and we decided right there we'd try to move to the area.

My daughter graduated high school this year and will be attending East Texas Baptist University to study music.  My family and I jumped at the chance to become a Pine Tree Pirate when a theatre position came open this year.  I'm so excited to become a part of the fine arts family at PTISD!  My son will be a part of the Pine Tree High School Marching Band.”
