Central Florida Staff

Shannon Rickard

Central Florida Area Director
Shannon has a heritage in the teaching of foreign languages. Growing up in a family with two life-long foreign language educators gave her an early appreciation for culture and language.  Shannon spent thirteen years working for two of the largest financial services corporations in the U.S.: Lincoln Financial Group and M&I Bank.  Her experience with these corporations only reinforced Shannon ‘s belief in the value of learning a second language . Shannon is the mother of two children and has recently relocated from Wisconsin to Florida. While living in Wisconsin, she was introduced to the Futura Language Professionals program, as both of her children had the opportunity to take the Futura classes at their elementary school. When Shannon  arrived in Florida, she was committed to ensuring her children continued to have the opportunity to learn the Spanish language, which is why she has started the Futura Language Professionals program in Central Florida.  She is very excited about partnering Central Florida schools and furthering the mission of introducing all the benefits of learning a foreign language to the children of our community.
