Ms. Cindy Russell
Hello and Welcome to my page!!! My name is Cindy Russell and I work in Student Development at SSS. I am an advocate for students and their success both at school and in their communities. I am a veteran teacher and have worked many years in Johnston County Public Schools. Prior to my twenty plus years in Johnston County, I worked at Division TEACCH in Charlotte and Chapel Hill. I graduated from NCSU with a M.Ed in Special Education and Speech/Language. I have been a National Board Certified Teacher for the past 17 years, and I have also coached volleyball for the past 10 years. Prior to working at SSS, I worked at both the elementary and middle school levels.
Personally, I am the proud mother of a son and a daughter! I am a beach fanatic and can be found most days away from school at one of our many beautiful East Coast beaches. When I am home, I enjoy gardening and music.
Please contact me if I can help remove any barriers to successful learning while at SSS. My extension is 5220.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
