Music that Describes Alyssa
Alyssa Richardson was nominated by Danielle Gordon, a family member.
Ms. Richardson has dedicated the past 30 years of her life to making sure her students are given the best opportunity to succeed. She has devoted countless hours of love and devotion to her students over the years. Her impact has been so great that she actually stayed in touch with quite a few students and got to witness how successful they became.
"If you are lucky enough to meet Ms. Richardson, you know that she is the most selfless, joyful, happy-go-lucky, thoughtful, caring, and intentional person you will ever come across," explains Gordon. "She is committed to ensuring her students grow academically, socially, emotionally, and mentally during their time in her classroom. I could not think of anyone better to nominate for this incredible award than Ms. Richardson. She spent a majority of her career at Title I schools in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is very fitting that this award is called the LifeChanger award, because over her 30 years of teaching, she has touched and impacted approximately 750 lives for the better. That is an incredible legacy to leave behind."
