Writer visits R.L. Young
Rick Shelton is an accomplished author with two books under his belt, but more than that, he is a writing counselor. He has spent much of his time for the last 30 years in schools around Alabama and the Southeast. Recently, he was invited by R.L. Young Elementary to spend four days leading writing workshops for teachers and students. Shelton spent one day with teachers, showing them practical methods for teaching writing in their classrooms. Three days were allotted for small sessions with students from kindergarten to 6th grade, using techniques to not only improve their writing skills, but also to share the enjoyment and fun of writing. The workshop was made possible by financial backing from Callie’s Kids, the nonprofit children’s foundation that supports enrichment opportunities for children in the Talladega County area.

The 6th grade students started "LIFE SKILLS" with Mr. Shirah today.  The students are very excited about working with him every Wednesday.  He shared his life experiences and told them many stories.  He also gave every student a statement that he wants them to learn during the year. We appreciate First Family Services for providing this wonderful program .
