Mrs. Russell

Hi there! My name is Katie Russell and I am a first grade teacher at King Elementary. 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 fifth year of teaching first grade. Prior to a year of teaching at 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 Superior Township with my husband Daniel and crazy cat, Oliver. My 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, many close friends, and a job that I love!
