Hello, my name is Bessie Chanta Richardson, also known by everyone as "Ms. Chanta". I have been in education and with Halifax County Schools for 23 years. I was a Pre-K teacher assistant for 10 years and transfered to the Title 6- Indian Education Coordinator for Halifax County for the last 13 years. I have also been a bus driver for 23 years. I service all American Indian students in the county. 

I was born and raised in Maryland. I moved to North Carolina in 1992 in which I started working for Halifax County Schools. I love working with all children and teaching them about their culture. My motto is "If You Dream It, You Can Achieve It".

I have been married for 37 years. I am a super mom to three sons and an awesome grandma to four beautiful grandchildren.
