Teachers of TN: Shellie Plumley

I decided to become a teacher because I wanted to provide a safe, loving environment where kids have the freedom to be creative, innovative, and expressive. I want them to be comfortable so they can develop their potential. The need for a safe environment to build self-esteem and self-confidence is so important for these kids. I want each kiddo to understand their importance in this community, and eventually, in the world. I strive each and every day to be a positive and steady influence on all of my students.
