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.
