My name is Brandi Russell, and I am the Literacy Coach. Please allow me to tell you a little about myself. I grew up in the great state of Texas!! I graduated from the University of Houston - Clear Lake in 1998, then went on to teach first grade in Pasadena and Pearland. In 2010, I moved to Don Jeter to teach second grade Language Arts followed by 3rd grade Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science and 5th Language Arts/ Social Studies. In 2018, I graduated from Lamar University with a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
I live in Manvel with my husband, daughter Reagan, cat Scout, dogs Jake, Tish, and Joy, cow Mollybelle, and donkey Fuzz-munch. It's quite lively around my house!! Other than spending time with my family and pets, I enjoy bike riding, hiking, traveling, reading, and running.
As the Literacy Coach, I work closely with teachers and students to implement the district's research-based literacy program.
