Mrs. Shaneka Lopez
Hello! My name is Mrs. Shaneka Lopez. I am excited to be your child's teacher this year! This will be my 2nd year at Richland. I have worked for the District for approximately 20 years,in grades 1-3, mainly 2nd Grade. I studied at the University of Memphis and received a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree. I love teaching because it allows me to learn, as well. I encourage my students try to learn something everyday. There is always something new to learn!
I am married to my high school sweetheart and we were grateful to have raised 3 boys, who are now ALL GROWN UP (cry, cry). We are caring for my mother-in-law who battles with dementia.
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl playing school with my extra school supplies. I seek out new opportunities to improve my craft. I encourage my families to openly discuss their concerns and questions about the path of their child's learning. We are a team and we need each other to help the children learn.
I can't wait for us to get started on this new journey this year!
