Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Russ

My name is Dara Russ. I am delighted to return to Pleasant Grove this year. This is my second year teaching second grade. I earned my undergraduate degree at North Carolina State University, and my Master of Arts in Teaching at Meredith College. When I am not teaching, I enjoy playing board games with friends, visiting the library, and exploring local greenways with my dog Sora. I look forward to working together to help your child SOAR and THRIVE this year at PGES.
