Jennifer Russell

High School Art Teacher and PRO Facilitator

With an impressive amount of visual overstimulation and color, Jenn Russell welcomes her students into her art room at Hebron High School in the Lewisville Independent School District. She loves jokes of the popsicle stick variety, chocolate, tchotchkes, and color (did we mention that?). She is a newly minted and still lost on a daily basis mom to a little boy named Nate, or #ARussellSprout as he is known to his followers. When she has time, you can find her reading, dabbling with pencils or in the great Texas outdoors with her camera.
