Hello and welcome to my Dayton ISD website! My name is Miss Russell and I am a first year agriscience teacher here at DHS. I grew up in Kingwood, Texas and graduated from Kingwood Park High School in 2015. I was heavily involved in the agriculture department and FFA, and i am very excited to join the Dayton FFA Chapter as an advisor. I have spent the last four years studying at Sam Houston State University, where I just recently graduated in May of this year. EAT Em’ UP KATS!!
I recieved my B.S. in Animal Science with Honors from Sam Houston State University this past May. I minored in Secondary Education and applied for my Texas teaching certificate the week after i graduated from SHSU.
This will be my first year teaching, and I am very excited to have the opportunity to start my career in Dayton ISD. I am one of three new agriculture teachers/FFA advisors for DHS and I wil mostly be teaching the animal science courses in the department. I am looking forward to teaching my students and quite possibly learning many things from them!
I completed my student teaching assisgnment through the College of Education at SHSU in New Caney, Texas. I taught Principles of AFNR, Equine Science, Floral Design, and Horticulture. My FFA duties included coaching the vet med CDE team, working with the chapter officer team, and looking over lamb and goat SAE projects.
I love spending time with friends and family on the weekends, but my heart belongs to my golden retriever Moose. I rescued him from a shelter a little over three years ago when he was just a puupy. He loves to play fetch and run around the park, so that is how we spend most of our time.
When I am not teaching I love to do things outside and enjoy nature I love riding on a boat or jet skis and swimming at the lake. I also love baseball, especialy Houston Astros baseball!!! It is the best way to get me off topic, because I cannot stop talking about the organization. With that being said, you can also always find me supporting the Bearkats as I am the loudest and proudest SHSU alum. A few interesting things about me is that I am left handed and have years of experience caring for whitetail deer in a high-fence operation.
