Hello.  I am Dana Ray Shelton Russell.  I am proud to say I am a 1983 graduate of Horn Lake High School.  I am an alumni of Mississippi State University.  This is my 20th year to teach.  It is my second year teaching special education.  

I returned to Desoto County in 2012.  I suffered the loss of my spouse and felt a new beginning was in store for me.  I married Don Russell in 2013.  Together we have five children.

  I enjoy teaching SPED because I am able to work with the children in small group or one on one.  My philosophy of elementary education is to make learning fun.  I want my students to LOVE school.
