Ms. Russell

I am Ms. Russell, am I am honored to serve as the Student Support Facilitator at Austin Road Middle School. As the SSF, I lead the Exceptional Student Education (ESE) department and support our ESE students, staff, and families. My enthusiasm for teaching is certainly overwhelming. I started as an Exceptional Student Education(ESE) paraprofessional in 2001. My lifetime dream was to become an educator. Well, after 12 long years of persistence, here I stand today. Currently, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and a Masters of Education with a concentration in Special Education. I am not only preserved, but I have also conquered my lifetime dream. Lastly, I am proud to say, that in four short months, I will graduate with my Educational Specialist Degree(EdS), in Special Education.  #iAm ARMS Courageous Courage...#WeAREARMStrong
