My name is Tiffany Russell and I am excited to take the position of School Psychologist/Counselor in the Fall. I am looking forward to meeting staff, students, and families here at Durham Elementary. Although I’ve been working as a school psychologist in Washington for the past 4 years, I received my education and training in Portland. My family and I are anxiously awaiting our move back “home” to Oregon.
I received my B.S. degree in Human Development from Warner Pacific College in 2007. I completed my graduate degree at George Fox University in 2013 and received an Educational Specialist degree in School Psychology. During graduate school, I found my passion for counseling students, as well as educational psychology, and assessment. With a variety of curriculum, modalities, and intervention, I work with students on problem solving, academic achievement, and building social emotional skills.
Outside of school, I am a wife, and a mom to two wonderful kids! As a family, we enjoy hiking, cooking, and training our puppy, Frasier.
I look forward to meeting each and every student, as well as staff and families in the coming months. Thank you for welcoming me to your school!
