Music that Describes Amber
Amber Russell was nominated by an anonymous colleague.
Ms. Russell is an amazing educator! She cares for each and every student she comes in contact with and makes a dramatic impact on each of them. Many students come back year after year to show their accomplishments and appreciation towards the work she put in with them. Some students come back and are enrolled in the teaching profession because they want to make an impact like she did.
Ms. Russell is also part of the cross country and track programs, and she is a leader in her school. She has great ideas, many which are directed towards helping others succeed in school. Her number one concern is always "is my student ok."
"Valley Center is lucky to have such a caring, heartwarming person dedicated to not only teaching students how to live a healthy lifestyle, but how to become successful members of society," said her nominator.
