Fran Risse teaches elementary school because of one of her elementary school teachers.
“I actually decided to become a teacher when I was in 2nd grade. My teacher was absolutely wonderful. She was so passionate about what she was doing, and kind and loving, and patient with us and it just made me want to be part of that.”
When she's not in the classroom, she's volunteering–doing Bible studies or just helping out where her kids and her community need her.
