Hello. My name is Mr. Russell and I am going to be your students second grade teacher this year. This will be my 21st year in education. I have taught in Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina… Grades K-8. This is my 4th year with RCPS and 3rd year here at Lincoln Terrace Elementary. I love teaching and watching little minds shape and mold into wonderful little readers, writers, mathematicians, etc. My favorite thing is when the light bulb turns on because a kiddo “gets” it.

I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in 2001 from East Tennessee State University in Johnson City TN. GO BUCS!!!!

I was born and raised in Far Southwest Virginia, and I love everything about our great regions in Virginia.

I also work with the Cave Spring High School Marching Band as the Color Guard Coordinator. I have been involved in this activity since 1994 therefore, am a huge fan of the “Friday Night Lights”

In closing, I have always loved kids and teaching has been my dream goal since I was a child. I love college football, music, family and relaxing. My goal is to always create a fun and safe, caring environment for your children and get them ready for the third grade!

Thank you in advance for making this a great year
