Latrisha Wright, LGSW

6th Grade Counselor/Social Worker

Hi, I’m Latrisha Wright, the 6th grade Counselor here at DCI. I am excited to embark on my second year servicing the community of DCI.  I am a native Washingtonian and passionate about helping children and families here in our Nation’s Capital.  I hold a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree from Coppin State University (1999) and Masters of Social Work (MSW) from Howard University School of Social Work (2009). Since 2016 I have been a Licensed Graduate Social Worker (LGSW). In 2019 I became the recipient of the Model of Excellence Award from Unique Learning Center for my commitment and service to children.  My career in Social Work spans for nearly 20 years working for various public and private agencies here in the District of Columbia servicing the most underserved populations.  In my free time I enjoy traveling with my husband and three children.  My long term goal is to open a homeless shelter for families here in DC.
