Juliana Russell is an amazing foreign language teacher! She had been my French teacher for more than 3 years. The way that she conveyed the language of French to me (and the rest of my former classmates) was very efficient. She was easy to understand and easy to learn from. I walked out of her class every day having learned something new and learned it well. She taught me how to speak, write, and read the language; she didn't teach just one part of the language. She prepared me and the rest of my former classmates for expanding our languages outside of the classroom. After being one of her students, I feel comfortable with using French in and out of school. She is the reason that I developed my love for French and my desire to continue to learn/use the language. Mrs. Russell is truly a great teacher and I recommend her to anyone who wants to learn or strengthen a foreign language!

Juliana Russell is honestly the most wonderful language teacher anyone could ever have. She is an enormous inspiration to me and was the reason I developed a desire to learn more about languages. She does a marvelous job of helping students to gain a complete understanding of the material. She is energetic, optimistic, and engaging. She possesses immense creativity and is always very clever when forming activities to elevate student's grasp on the topic. She is extremely experienced and I could not think of anyone better to learn a language from.

As an educator and as a person, Juliana is energetic, positive, optimistic, and determined to reach each of her students where they are and push them to where she thinks they could be.
Juliana is creative, experienced, and tremendously competent in teaching Spanish.

Juliana Russell is an excellent teacher of languages. I observed her many times in her middle grades classroom connecting with students in supporting their proficiency in languages. She has a unique and exciting way to actively engage students in loving Spanish, French or Italian. Frankly, in over 40 years in education, I have rarely seen an educator who is as natural a talent as Ms. Russell.
