WE LOVE TEACHERS! Congratulations Ms. Melodie Musgrove from Walnut Bend Elementary School. You are an awesome teacher!!! Celebrating great Houston educators with our friends from Shell Federal Credit Union ❤️

Ms. Musgrove is passionate about teaching and supporting the whole student and this year, Ms. Musgrove is moving into a new career in education, she is becoming a school counselor.

And, her advice to students as they head back to school?

“I think just to know that they’re bringing their best, and they’re bringing everything they need to be successful. Regardless of what your backpack looks like, regardless of what your shoes look like or what you look like. You have everything that you need to be successful and your teachers and your counselors and your principals and your coaches will do the rest. They’ll bring what they have, but you already have everything you need.”

Watch us surprise Ms. Musgrove as she was setting up her new office in the video above.
