Mr. Sean Russell


My name is Sean Russell and I'm honored to be aboard Wiley Elementary as part of the Fifth Grade crew. I grew up attending WCPSS schools in Raleigh and Garner, and I've been a proud WCPSS teacher for many years. Problem-Based Learning (PBL), hands-on, and minds-on learning will all coexist harmoniously in our Science and Social Studies classroom.

I earned my Elementary Education degree from East Carolina University. (Go Pirates!) My wife and I live next door to the NC Museum of Art and enjoy hiking the greenways, biking, beach trips, museums, and live music. Our son works in real estate and our daughter attends UNCW.

Goals 11 and 12 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals speak to my heart.

 I'm looking forward to an amazing school year full of intriguing inquiry, lots of learning, and exceptional experiences!
