  • Ms. Samantha Russo 

    This will be my fifth year teaching and my third year at Hillside! I have taught first, third and fifth grade before! I received my undergraduate degree from Loyola University Maryland in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education. I am also receiving a Master’s Degree in Reading from Montclair State University. I believe that learning is a lifelong process that revolves around teaching the whole child. When I am not at school, I love to take walks, hike, read and practice yoga. Most of all, I love hanging out with my dog, Lucy! 

    I can’t wait to further get to know you and your family!
