• I love my family! Hi!  My name is Mrs. Russo, and I will be your child's fourth grade teacher. This is my third year at Monte Vista, and my twelfth year teaching!  I can't wait to help my students explore, learn, and grow.

    I grew up in Ohio.  I moved here when I was in high school and went to ASU for my undergrad.  Then, I moved on to NAU for my Master’s in Education.  My family knew I would be a teacher from a young age when I would give all of my three sisters homework during the summer. 

    My favorite past time is reading, hiking, and spending time with my family.  My oldest is an energetic, little boy named Davis, and my youngest is also energetic.  Her name is Ava.  I have two dogs and an amazing husband to help me keep up with our active kids. 

    I can’t wait to meet my new students!  Let’s have a great year together!
