Mrs. Tiffanie Russell, M.Ed.
My name is Tiffanie Russell, and I am the Science Lab Specialist at Bell Academy. I will be supporting classroom science instruction with hands-on lab activities for grades Pre-K to 6th grade. The core of my science instruction will be a Full Option Science System (FOSS), an inquiry based science program. My students will interact with objects, materials, organisms, and systems in an inquiry-based environment that promotes investigation and high-level thinking.
I hold both a Bachelor and Master's degree in Exceptional Education from Delta State University. I have also completed certification in Leadership and Administration in Education. I have 16 years of teaching experience in Exceptional Education, Language Arts,and Science. During my years as an educator, I have served in many capacities including teaching in both the elementary and middle school areas, as well as serving as an academic coach. I am married to Clint Russell, and we have two children Anna and Collin. I have lived in the Delta my entire life, living the past thirteen years in Cleveland.
I am elated to begin my second year at Bell Academy. It is my desire to work with the students, parents, teachers, and community to ensure our students are receiving the best education possible. I believe that ALL children can learn, and this will be he guiding principle in my classroom. I look forward to meeting each student and their family. We will have an exciting and engaging year in the Science Lab!!
