Felisha Sellers earned her bachelor of Political Science in 1995 from the University of Alabama. She went on to Auburn University Montgomery and earned a Master of Public Administration degree in 1998. She began her teaching career in 2002 with a position in Irving ISD. Several interstate moves through Texas and she found herself proudly as Dallas ISD teacher at the Dallas Environmental Science Academy. She finds Texas history to be fascinating, and being an "import" she wanted to learn as much as she could for herself and her students about the Lone Star State.
