About the Teacher

Hello and welcome! I'm Mrs. Kate Russell (formerly Ms. Wideman for those of you who are confused.). I've fully accepted it will take a long time before I no longer have to answer to two different names. This is my 6th year as the library media specialist at Harriman High School, and I spent 2 1/2 years before that as the library assistant. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education - History and a Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction - School Library Science. I'm originally from Kingston, but I moved to Knoxville after getting married. I spend all of my time doing one of the following things: drinking coffee, reading a book, running, or playing with my dog. 
On top of running the library, I am also the yearbook adviser. I basically don't go anywhere without my camera with me, and yes, I always welcome ideas or pictures you may want included. Just shoot me an email!
