##### About Russell

I began my teaching career as a substitute teacher in Conroe ISD. I taught a variety of subjects until I was given a week-long assignment for a 5th grade math class. During that week, I was contacted by the mother of one of the kids in the class. The mom said that her daughter had always struggled in math but that she was understanding the way I explained it. She asked if I was available for any tutoring after school. We met once a week for several months and the girl's grades significantly improved. I was thrilled at having been part of the child's education and decided to pursue a full-time career teaching math. I discovered very quickly that I love the moment when I can tell a lightbulb just went off in a child's mind. It's wonderful to know that I took part in a child's understanding of a difficult concept!

It took another year to get certified, but I finally became a full-time 8th grade math teacher in Spring ISD where I worked for 7 years. During that time I taught on-level 8th grade math as well as above level Algebra I and Geometry to 8th grade PreAP students. I also taught 8th grade math to 6th grade above-level students.

During my time as a teacher in Spring ISD, I was teacher of the year once and runner-up twice. I was voted most popular teacher by the student body twice. I have an excellent rapport with kids and I'm good at making the lessons fun and keeping students engaged and on-task.
