Meet Mrs. Shelanne Richard - Counselor

I chose to teach because... teaching is the profession that creates all other professions and has the greatest impact on the future, which presents a challenge, and I enjoy a challenge. Without teachers, the world would not have lawyers, doctors, engineers, etc. The thought of touching children's lives by enriching their minds, by modeling a positive attitude, and by nourishing them with love and knowledge motivated me to enter the teaching profession which has many rewards and where every day is different.
