My name is Elena Russell and I am the middle school math teacher. Before moving to Flagstaff, I worked as an elementary school librarian and an RTI Reading and Math teacher. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Humanities from ASU and am completing my Master’s degree in Education from the University of Phoenix. Besides teaching, I also lead two middle school clubs at FALA: Project LIT and FLL Robotics. I am excited to be on staff at FALA for a second year!
In my freetime, I enjoy reading, watching movies, listening to records, and spending time with my family. We have two dogs, Walter and Daisy, who keep us very busy. We try to get outdoors as much as we can to explore our great state! My favorite AZ places to visit are Mount Ord, Tonto Natural Bridge, and (of course) the Grand Canyon.
I am looking forward to the 2020-2021 school year, even during these unusual circumstances. Until we can all meet in-person, stay safe and healthy!
