Ellenia Russell

Hello Bulldogs! I have been teaching at York Road Elementary for 3 years. I am originally from Lancaster and graduated from Lancaster High School. I attended North Greenville University where I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. I have a Masters in Sports Management from The United States Sports Academy. After 17 years in the general education classroom, I added PE as a certification in 2019.

I am married and my husband, Morris, and I have one son, Cole. He is a Sophomore at Northwestern High School. Cole and I are learning to play golf, and we enjoy our time together on the course. I have a dog named Big Mac. I am excited to help my students grow and become more active. One interesting fact about me is that I was a college athlete. I played softball at Carson Newman College and North Greenville University.
