Ms. Leigh Russell

I teach 8th grade U.S. History at HJH. I graduated from SHSU with a major in history and a minor in English. I moved to the East Texas area in 1999, and I wouldn't live anywhere else. I am looking forward to a new year, and I hope you are too. My favorite quote comes from Horace Mann and he said, "Education is the great equalizer."
