All About Me

Dear Students and Parents,

I am so excited to be your librarian this year! This will start my 13th year in education. I taught both second and third grade for four years. I was the librarian at an elementary school in HISD for seven of my ten years of service there. To help get to know each other a little better, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite day to day things.

FAMILY: Mr. Russell and I have been married for nine years. We have two boys, Glen age 7 and Jonas age 7. Our extended family is spread out all over the world, but I was born and raised in Alabama.

BOOKS: My favorite passtime is reading! I love reading books for young kids, adults, and every age inbetween. One of my favorite parts of being a librarian is connecting kids with great books. I believe there is a perfect book for every students and a perfect student for every book!

EXERCISE: I take Taekwondo at Master J Kim's World Class Taekwondo and love it. I am currently a red stripe belt and plan to become a black belt within three years. In addition to Taekwondo, I am a runner. I enjoy running the Houston Half Marathon held in January.

CRAFTS: I love lettering, doodling, crochet, and doing art with my sons.

I can't wait to learn all about you too. I"ll see you in the library!


Mrs. Russell
