Meet the Teacher

My name is Shelby Russo and I am thrilled to be your child's third grade teacher! This will be my seventh year teaching and my sixth year at South Side Elementary school. I love teaching and watching little minds shape and mold into wonderful little readers, writers, mathematician, etc. 

I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree from Le Moyne College. I also obtained a Master's Degree in Literacy from Canisius College. 

I was born and raised in Canastota. I actually went to elementary school at South Side! I currently live in Canastota with my husband and daughter. It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to teach in my hometown. Canastota is a wonderful Community.

My goal is to always create a fun and safe learning environment for your child and to get him/her ready for fourth grade. Thank you in advance for making this a great year!
