Welcome to Deep Run High School.  I am very excited about the 2008-2009 school year.

I have taught all grade levels of high school English, including AP classes.  I have also taught journalism and have a master's degree in counseling.

Ninth grade English is a fundamental year.  We will cover literature, grammar, vocabulary, oral presentations, writing and research. 

I have a separate link and page for 9A English and 9C English that will post updated information.  This page is general information that applies to all of my ninth-grade English students.


Work must be submitted on time for full credit unless you are absent.

****IF YOU ARE ABSENT, YOU MUST TAKE THE INITIATIVE TO CONTACT ME FOR MAKE-UP WORK.  Being responsible is important.
(I check email several times a day.)

Make certain that all papers have your first and last names, the block/period, and the date.

All writings assignments must be done on the computer and printed, or neatly written in black/blue ink.  No pencil.  No torn sheets of paper.  Limited crossed out words.

Journals - pencil is okay.


I will expect a hard copy of your work.  I will accept work placed in my on-line school drop box only when agreed upon or requested. 

I am now designing my SCHOOL SPACE website.  This program will allow students to get work when not in school/on the server.  It will allow the teacher to put work on the site when not at school/on the server.  It will allow for greater flexibility and communication. 

Please contact me with any concerns that you may have throughout the school year. I will reply to you as soon as possible.  Email is my preferred means of communication.  My address is  cdruss@henrico.k12.va.us.

I am looking forward to meeting my new students and visiting with my former students.  I am now located in learning cottage (trailer) #5.  See you on September 2.

Mrs. Russ


I am starting to use SchoolSpace now.  Please refer to that site.
