Volunteer Spotlight: Valerie Wright-Fleming at R.C. Burleson Elementary


After retiring from Dallas ISD—having worked as an English Language Arts instructional coach and teacher— in 2013, Valerie Wright-Fleming soon began volunteering for the district one year later.

Wright-Fleming learned through her church that R. C. Burleson Elementary was in need of volunteers to read to students for Dr. Suess’ birthday and has been volunteering ever since. As a retired educator, Wright-Fleming engages primarily with fourth-grade students and helps with their writing. Sharing the joy with students who have achieved a goal they have been striving toward and helping the teachers make student success a reality are what make volunteering a rewarding experience, Wright-Fleming said.
