Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tiffanie Russell, Ed.S.
Welcome To B.L. Bell Academy. I am honored to continue serving as the principal of B. L. Bell Academy this year. After spending three years serving as a teacher at Bell, I am happy to begin my second year in administration. I grew up in Greenville, Mississippi where I remained until I went to college. I attended Mississippi Delta Community College, where I received my associate's degree in general education. I then transferred to Delta State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Education, followed by a Master of Education degree. Most recently, I received my Educational Specialist degree Over the past nineteen years in education, I have taught both Special Education, English Language Arts, and Science. I have also served as the school test coorinator, intervention coordinator, lead teacher, and assistant principal. I also serve as an adjunct professor for Delta State University in the division of Teacher Education, Leadership, and Research. My husband Clint and I have two children, Anna and Collin.
I believe every student is capable of achieving great things, but they can not do it on their own. By working together as a community of teachers, administrators, and parents, we can help our children to acheive new heights. As we begin this year, I look forwared to building relationships with each of you to ensure academic success of each of our children.
