After teaching 32 years in the Lakeland R-III school District, I retired in the spring of 2006. Most of those years were spent as the librarian, either in the elementary or the high school or both. Books and reading are my passion and sharing it with young people makes it even greater. A year after I retired, I started volunteering at CCA–where else but in the library! A librarian has a way of making a library her own and I’m pretty sure that’s how I feel about CCA’s library.
I’ve been married to Jerry Russell since 1972. We have two wonderful sons, Josh (married to Julie, also wonderful, who teaches at CCA) and Gabe (who lives in Sedalia), and two adorable grandchildren, Mackenzie and Miles, both students at CCA. Jerry and I live in Lowry City. We enjoy camping, traveling, working in the yard, and, most of all, spending time with our family.
Mrs Sandy Russell is our Librarian again for the 2013-2014 school year.
