Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Nedjra Russell

My name is Nedjra M. Russell, and I am a Certified Early Childhood Educator. In addition, I am also certified to teach English Speakers of Other Languages and as an Administrator. I have taught in the Madison City School District since 2013. My love of teaching began when I was but a school age girl. My favorite pastime was to sit my brother and sisters down and teach them what I was learning in school. My career as an Educator has not been typical. My husband and I have four children, and we decided I should stay home with them until they were older. Along the way I operated a Home Daycare business for the Air Force. One year I even won Home Provider of the Year! After serving children in that capacity for 12 years I went to work at a child development center for the Air Force. My husband retired and we moved to Madison. I continued my education and obtained employment within the pre-K program. Currently. I am serving as the MAAP at Rainbow Elementary School.
