Ms. Andreina Russell

Hi, my name is Andreina, and I currently teach Spanish at Schimelpfenig Middle School. I have been teaching for 14 years but I have been at Schim for 6 years. My passion for teaching began a long time ago when I volunteered to teach Spanish lessons at my daughter's Montessori school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Back then, I was working at American Express Financial Advisors with an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and a Masters in Business (MBA). During my lunch break, I would drive 5 minutes to my daughter's school and teach a variety of Spanish lessons to the children. In return, I got a discount for my daughter's tuition but;most importantly, I got rewarded by the kid's smiles and eagerness to learn. I was also very impressed at how quickly they acquired a second language. After volunteering for 3 years, I decided to go back to school. As my family moved to north Louisiana, I went back to get a Masters in the Arts of Teaching at Louisiana Tech College in Ruston. I knew I had made the right decision when I landed my first teaching job at a High School called West Ouachita High School. I taught and coached soccer there for 8 years. While at West Ouachita, I also had the opportunity to organize a trip to Costa Rica through EF and also had the chance to see my students literally living the language. It was a very rewarding experience. Then, it was time for us to move again. My husband got a promotion which moved us to Dallas, Texas. Since then, I have been at Schimelpfenig Middle School, striving to awaken the love for Spanish in my students.
