Mrs. Lynnette Russell
Mrs. Russell began teaching at Faith Academy in 2023. She believes strongly in Christian Classical education and wishes to contribute to building strong Christian character and worldview in students.
She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and brings 19+ years of teaching experience.
Mrs. Russell grew up in a gospel-singing family. They were known as, "The Melody Minors" in Iowa. Her Uncle/Onkle Mervin was a German professor and she was exposed to the German language growing up.
She and her husband, Stan, were married in 2023. They have four adult children between them.
Mrs. Russell's hobbies include singing in different languages, reading her Bible in other languages, swimming, and writing days of the week and months of the year in different languages.
One of her favorite Bible verses is Philippians 4:13, which says, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Mrs. Russell's ambitions are to be fluent in 5-7 languages and to be certified in Spanish/English interpreting.
While at Faith Academy, she is eager to encourage and build up students as the scripture reads in Ephesians 4:29, which says to encourage one another and build each other up. Her heart's desire is for students to enjoy learning.
