Mrs. Stephanie Russell

I am a graduate of Texas A&M University with a Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication. I taught Speech, Dance and PALS at Spring High School while also being the Assistant Drill Team Director. During my three years at Spring, I wrote the Professional Communications Credit by Exam for all of Spring ISD, was a member of the Positive Behavioral Intervention Committee and Campus Improvement Plan. While at Spring HS, I was selected as Rookie Teacher of the Year for the 2011-2012 school year. After moving to Richmond, I taught English I, II, and III at Austin High School while being the Student Council Sponsor. During my time at AHS, I served on the Campus Climate Committee and Advisory Committee. I was also the Instructional Coach for Differentiated Instruction in 2016-2017. In 2017-2018, I was the Team Lead for English II, Impact Team Team Lead, and was a finalist for Teacher of the Year. I was also selected as a PLLC for FBISD for the past three years.  I have taught professional development to the AHS staff numerous times, at district New Teacher Orientation, and at Dulles HS to 1st year teachers. This year I am the English II Team Lead, AVID Coordinator, AMBUSH Mentor Teacher, and English II AAC teacher and AVID I teacher at Travis High School. I am starting my 11th year of teaching this year and am excited for the new normal. I was also selected at Travis High School Teacher of the Year 2021-2022. My husband also works at Travis, and we have two beautiful daughters.
