Welcome to my website. I look forward to working with your 6th grader this year. I am Mrs. Russell, 6th grade science teacher here at Stetson Hills. I am a mother of two: my son is a Mechanical Engineer for Boeing in Huntington Beach, CA, and my daughter is a first year student on her way to earning a Doctor of Physical Therapy at A.T.Still University in Mesa. I am married to a loving and supportive husband. I have been teaching for twenty three years and have enjoyed watching the excitement in students' faces throughout the years. I earned my Bachelor's Degree at the University of the Pacific, my Master's Degree at Indiana University and continue to take courses to enrich my teaching. In November 2007, I became Nationally Board Certified in Science for grades 5 - 8, and have completed the District's Technology classes (DVTechPro). Currently, I take iTeach professional development and work with teacher candidates.
Let's have an exciting year!
