The Inspirational Person for the month of March is Chantel Richards, Special Education Teacher at A-C Central Elementary.  She is viewed as an invaluable resource for teachers and staff alike.  Not only does she provide special education instruction and support, she also assists with RTI practices.  Chantel is thoughtful while advocating for the needs of her students and inspires others to do the same.  One of her greatest talents is not to just provide the tools for success, but her ability to encourage students to begin to flourish on their own.  Congratulations to Chantel!!
