About Mrs. Russo
Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Barbara Russo and I have taught in the Norris School District for 25 years. I was born and raised in San Luis Obispo, Ca and I moved to Bakersfield in 1995. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies, a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, a Multiple Subject Clear Teaching Credential, CLAD Certification, and CTAP Level 1 and Level 2. My teaching experience has been in Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third Grades. I taught 1st and 2nd grade at Olive Drive Elementary and 3rd grade and Kindergarten here at Bimat. I am passionate about teaching, and I think being a Bimat Bulldog is the best!!!
I have been married to my wonderful husband Mike for 22 years and we have two amazing daughters. Jessie our oldest is a Snior at Cal State University Bakersfield. Our youngest daughter is Jenna and she is a Freshman at Cuesta College.
I can't wait to have your child become a Kindergarten "Love Bug" in my classroom! Our classroom is a fun place to learn. Your child will be treated with respect, and they will always feel safe which will allow them to learn and grow every day. Bimat feels like a big family and we are excited for you to join our Bimat Family!
