    Greetings!  My name is Rebecca Schendel and I teach the Honeybee class at Russell Elementary School.  I am beginning my 21st year of teaching Kindergarten and I couldn't think of a more exciting place to be!  I was born and raised in Montana and have lived in Missoula for over 25 years!  I have two daughters ages 12 and 16,  two dogs,  a parakeets, and 4 chickens living at my house!  I love to run, read, grow flowers and food in my garden, and make music! I can play 6 different musical instruments and know American Sign Language.  I am currenly pursuing my masters degree in Integrated Fine Arts and can't want to sing, build, and create with your child!   Russell Elementary is my neighborhood school and I love that I get to work with families in my neighborhood!  I am proud to be a Russell Teacher and a former Russell Parent.
