Mrs. Leisha Russell
My name is Leisha Russell. I am very excited to join Athens Elementary. This is my 21st year in education. I have taught several grades in elementary and have been a media specialist for the last 6 years. I have been married for 21 years and I have three children and 3 grandchildren. I love cooking, sewing, reading, and going to the beach every summer. I look forward to knowing each student and I hope to share the joy and excitment of reading all year long!
