Master's Degree in Early/Elementary Education

Mrs. Sarah Russell


My name is Mrs. Russell and I grew up in Pendleton, Oregon. I graduated from the Oregon State University with a Bacholor's degree in Education. I then finished my Master's Degree in Early/Elementary Education at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon.  After graduating from college and getting married, my husband David and I moved to a village called Hooper Bay to begin our teaching careers.  After one year in Hooper Bay, we fell in love with the Mat-Su Valley and decided to make it our home.  I have been teaching in the Mat-Su District since 2004.  I spent most of my time teaching first grade at Iditarod Elementary and then I discovered that my heart is in Preschool.  I love Preschool, Shaw and all the amazing families that I've been able to meet!

David and I have 3 wonderful and wild boys.  We spend a lot of time camping, watching them play sports and driving them around a lot!!  We also have a very smart Aussiedoodle dog named Kenna.  Our 3 boys are Kade, Kolt and Kai and we decided we needed to have a girl dog and her name also had to start with a K.  I shall say that I wanted a female dog as I am a little outnumbered in the Russell house!

My hobbies - I love healthy food, essential oils, camping, traveling, and hanging out with my boys, hubby and dog!
