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!
