Mrs. Russell

I came to Butterfield in 2008 the year the school opened with 3 years of teaching experience. I have enjoy working in Maricopa and appreciate the opportunities to grow and participate in leadership positions. I have been married to my husband for 18 years, and we have two teenage daughters.

I believe all students are capable of learning. Each student is an individual and won’t learn at the same rate, but with different methods and strategies it is possible. Varying methods of teaching will create an interesting and fun environment and will help all students succeed. I plan on using several different methods of teaching, including hands on, technology based, cooperative learning groups and group discussion. Students can contribute to the classroom, sharing and gaining knowledge from each other. My goal is for students to become lifelong learners who have the skills needed to solve problems, communicate with, and work productively with others. Students must be able to function in the real world which not only requires academic knowledge but social skills as well. I believe educating students is a partnership between parents, families and communities. We need to work together to support and enrich the lives of our students.
