Mrs. Rhonda Russell


I have been married for 30+ years to Shane Russell.  He is also an educator!  He teaches 8th grade Science at Hartselle Jr High School.  We have two adult children, Brittni Host and Seth Russell. I have three grandchildren, Harper, Caroline, and Cooper.  We love Hartselle and are so thankful that our children have also chosen to make this their home.

Teaching Experience:

I have been teaching for 25 years.  I began my career teaching kindergarten while living in Tennessee.  After a couple of years, I moved up to third grade until we moved to Alabama in 1998.  I started out teaching second grade at Falkville Elementary.  I later moved to first grade until I began teaching at Barkley Bridge in 2004. My Barkley Bridge journey began with me teaching second grade.  I later moved to fourth grade and stayed there until I had the opportunity to move back to first grade.  In 2018 I was blessed to become part of the Crestline family teaching kindergarten! I am very familiar with K-4 curriculum and I use that knowledge to help me guide my students to where they need to be.
