But, Mrs. Selena Wallace teaches with honor and commitment that is unlike any other. Her standards are high but demonstrate true life values. She has established over and over again, the positive impact that teaching and caring has had on her students. She leads by example through unwavering dedication in leading students and teachers into becoming the best they can be."
