• Hi! I am Brittney Russell. I will be teaching English I & II for the upcoming school year 2021-2022. I'm excited to join this wonderful school and look forward to educating our future leaders.


    This is my sixth year being an educator. However, this is my first year being in a new school district. I've taught in Holmes County for five years. I am a graduate of Jackson State University. Throughout my years at Jackson State University, I received my Bachelor's, Master's, and Specialist's degree in Education.

    I look forward to contributing and meeting all of the bright minds at Velma Jackson High School. I believe our students today, are our future leaders tomorrow. My motto is " Think Big." My goal is to make sure all students explore, create, and reach their highest potential. 

    "Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." - Malcom X
