Hello, My name is Kristy Del Russo
I am a product of a military veteran. My father was enlisted in the Air Force and retired after 22 years. His active duty has allowed me to experience living and vacationing in many other countries. I have lived in Madrid, Spain and was able to visit countries such as France, Portugal and Italy. I have lived and worked in Burlington County for most of my life. I graduated from Rowan University with a Bachelor’s in History and a Minor in Secondary Education. I earned another a Minor in Psychology at Wilmington University.
I currently teach at Northern Burlington High School in the area of Social Studies. I started teaching in 2006 and moved to Northern in 2012. I currently teach U.S History II and Intro to Psychology at the high school. I was the Class of 2017 class advisor for each of their four years and have coached middle school field hockey here at Northern in the past. As Class of 2017 advisor I have successfully organized their Junior prom, held at the Constitution Center in Philadelphia, and the Senior trip to Disney. I often chaperone many dances and always give a Northern Choice award every year.
My classroom is always open and you can often find my students working on collaborative projects. I am a storyteller by nature and thus I like to incorporate them into my curriculum. My goal as an educator is to provide the necessary tools for students to succeed outside of high school. I often ask myself, how is this information going to influence my students in the future, and then I plan accordingly. Teaching has always and continues to be a passion. My days are filled with constant laughter and positive interactions with students. I can’t imagine working in any other field.
When I’m not involved in activities at Northen I am spending time with my husband and two boys. I have a 1st grader and a Preschooler who already love to go to school as well. I am an active reader and love to travel. Our summers are filled with constant adventures and fun. If you have any questions or wish to contact me my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
