I'm Mrs. Barbara Russell and this is my 22nd year teaching at Aledo. I teach Social Studies at the Aledo Learning Center. I love teaching Social Studies and want to encourage my students to appreciate U.S. History, World History, World Geography, Government, Economics, Psychology and Sociology.
I am from Shreveport, Louisiana and graduated from Byrd High School. I also graduated with a B.A. from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette and received my teaching certification from Tarleton State University.
I have been married to my husband, Steve, for 40 years. We have two sons, Clay and Gregory, both Aledo graduates, so we are Bearcat backers for certain.
