Ms. Beth Russell
Hi! My name is Beth Russell and I teach Biology and Marine Biology at Great Oak High school. This is my 8th year teaching and my 8th year in the Temecula Valley Unified School District. I truly enjoy teaching and my students mean the world to me.
I have lived in Temecula for over 30 years and I graduated from Temecula Valley High School right here in the valley. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree at California State University of Fullerton. I decided to continue my education at National University where I earned a Masters of Education with an emphasis on Cross Cultural Education.
I have a ten year old daughter named Peyton and she is the light of my life! I am passionate about everything science has to offer and I love to share my passion for science with my students.
I am committed to helping my students succeed. I pride myself on creating a safe and fun place for my students to learn and grow throughout our year together. My hope every year is that my students leave with a renewed passion for science and a sense of accomplishment and belonging that lasts a lifetime.
