Degrees and Certifications:
Hi there! My name is Katie Russell and I have the privilege of being King's Building Literacy Expert (BLE). As the BLE, I will provide reading intervention to many remarkable King students and support literacy instruction throughout the school. I graduated from Michigan State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. I also earned a Master's of Reading from Eastern Michigan University in 2014. This will be my eighth year of teaching. Before coming to King, I taught for three years at a charter school in Ypsilanti. I'm really looking forward to another great school year with the students, staff, and parents here at King!
When I'm not at school, I am at my home in South Lyon with my husband Daniel and crazy cat, Oliver. Students will hear lots of silly stories about him this year! I absolutely love baking, reading, traveling to new places, and cheering on my Spartans during football games. I feel extremely lucky to have such a wonderful family and a job that I love!
