Mrs. Leisha Russell

My name is Leisha Russell.  This is my 22nd year in education.  I taught several grades as an elementary teacher before moving into the Library Media position.  This is my 8th year as a Media Specialist.  I have a love for teaching literacy skills and sharing my love of reading.  I have been married for 32 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 excitement of reading all year long!
