2020-2021

 

My name is Shane Russell.  I am starting my 14th year of teaching here at Hartselle Junior High.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of North Alabama in May, 1985 and my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with certification in Educational Administration at Freed-Hardeman University in August, 1995.  I have worked as a teacher, coach, and bus driver for the past 31 years.

I have been married to my wife Rhonda for the past 34 years (as of Dec, 6).  Rhonda is a kindergarten teacher at Crestline Elementary and has been in education for 29 years.  Rhonda and I have two children:  Our daughter Brittni, who works as an emergency room nurse at Huntsville Hospital (Micah, self-employed) has two children.  Harper is 4 and Cooper just turned 3.  Our son Seth works as a safety coordinator for Turner Construction (Sarah, stay at home mom) and has two children.  Carolyn is 3 years old and Maddie is 3 months.  Rhonda and I have been blessed with some beautiful grandchildren!  We attend church at East Highland Baptist here in Hartselle.

I retired (2011) from the United States navy Reserve, Navy Operational Support Center, Bessemer, Al, where I held the position of Yeoman Chief Petty Officer.  I had the privilege to serve in Balad, Iraq from March 15, 2006-September 30, 2006 as a Senior Customs Inspection Agent.  I retired with a total of 23 years of military service.

My expectations for this class are very simple:

  1. I expect you to be prepared for class whether we are a traditional or virtual class
  2. I expect you to be honest and trustworthy
  3. I expect you to do your own work and turn it in on time
  4. I expect you to be respectful to your fellow students
  5. I expect you to work hard and earn what you receive
  6. I expect you to have high expectations of me

I look forward to having a great school year!
