I have been blessed to teach 3rd grade at Wetumpka Elementary School for my entire teaching career.  I am beginning my 30th year as a third grade teacher.


I have lived in Montgomery, Alabama since 1978. My father changed jobs, and I began 9th grade at Capitol Heights Junior High School. I graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1983. After high school, I attended Auburn University Montgomery until 1985. In 1985, I transferred to Auburn University where I received a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education. I began teaching 3rd grade at Wetumpka Elementary School in 1988. This is my 30th year to teach 3rd grade.


I am married to James Russell of Montgomery, Alabama and have two daughters, Lauren and Emma. Lauren is a graduate of Auburn University with a degree in Music Education. Lauren was married on June 27, 2015 to Jacob Strait.  Jacob and Lauren now live in Nashville, TN.  Lauren is a Music Teacher at Stoner Creek Elementary School in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee.  Emma is a freshman at Auburn University Montgomery. She is planning to major in Early Childhood Education.  I have a dog named Rusty.  I love Walt Disney World, attending Auburn football games, tailgating, collecting mercury glass Christmas ornaments, reading, and teaching third grade.
