Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Russo


Life Science

About Me:

Hey there, I'm Ms. Russo and I teach 7th grade Life Science. I obtained my degree in Biology (B.S.) concentrated in microbiology from Florida Gulf Coast University in 2019. Although this is my second year teaching at Oak Hammock Middle, I am excited to be apart of our on-site AVID team as well as a Leading and Learning representative for science. I am passionate about science not only because it is relevant to our everyday lives as human beings but also because science allows us to understand more about the natural world. Science allows us to create innovative technology that can benefit the planet and those that live here. The beauty of science is that it is constantly evolving with new discoveries and it helps foster creativity. My goal is to inspire my students--the future leaders of the world--to be curious, explore, research, create, and expand their mind, so that they can be confident and successful in their future endeavors.

Some facts about me: I was born in New York but grew up in Fort Lauderdale. I cheered competitively as well as coached. In my free time I love to travel (when possible), cook (eat), and keep active. I love animals and plants so much, I have them all over my home (and my classroom)! 

If you read all of that, kudos to you! I am excited to take on this year with y'all, no matter what life may throw our way. Go Ospreys!
