Hello My Name Is...

Sherrie Grunden Russell

ECSE Teacher

Sherrie Russell

My name is Sherrie Russell and I am an ECSE Teacher at Carthage Primary. This is my sixteen year to teach for CISD and my twenty-second year to teach. I absolutely love my class and this is by far my favorite of all of the teaching positions that I have held! It is a blessing each day to work with the special children in my classroom.
I am originally from Union Grove, Texas, where my parents still reside. I graduated from UGHS before attending Kilgore Junior College. Following my time there, I received my bachelors's degree from The University of Texas at Tyler, and am currently pursuing my Master's of Counseling Degree.

Personally, I have been blessed with some pretty awesome guys, of whom I am very proud. My sons, Jordan (CHS Class of 2019) who is a Freshman at TSTC, and Braden (CHS Class of 2016) who will be graduating from Panola College in May 2020,  make me proud everyday to be their mom. I was doubly blessed with boys, as their brothers Dayton (CHS Class of 2012) and Dustin (CHS Class of 2010) are both now working in their careers. I am eternally grateful for these four, and am tremendously proud of each one of them. 

Aside from my little family, I also have a couple of other irons in the fire. I drive bus HC 2 morning and afternoons, work Thursday and Friday night football games, and can be found at Chuck's Country Smokehouse most every other Friday and Saturday nights.
