Mrs. Russell

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Russell

My name is Christina Russell. I will be teaching fifth grade in 
the 2018-2019 school year. I am so excited to be a part of the community at Academy Charter.
A little about me... I am married to my wonderful husband, Justin. We have two fur babies {Ender and Ernie}, both of who are dogs. Though spending downtime with my pups and my husband are important, I have my "Get Away" hobbies that I enjoy, like baking, reading, hiking, and camping.
I have lived in Colorado most of my life, but I also moved around a lot as a child {military family}. I attended Widefield High School, in Colorado Springs and graduated from the University of Colorado in 2004 with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication and Public Relations. I eventually began working for USA Wrestling and had amazing opportunities to work with young athlete's. This lead me to go back to school to get my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. 
This will be my first year teaching at Academy Charter and my fourth year in Douglas County Schools. Before this, I taught third grade for two years and spent two years in a Special Education Program. Teaching is my passion! It is my mission to help instill a love of learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion so that my students develop a desire to become life-long learners. 
I look forward to a great year together!
