Dr. Steve Russell, Superintendent of Amador County Office of Education
Dear Amador County Schools Students, Staff, Parents and Community Members:
I am honored, thankful and excited to serve our students as the Superintendent of the Amador County Office of Education. Having had 39 years of experience in education and administration, I assure you that I appreciate the unique opportunity and the enormous responsibility that goes with providing leadership to our schools.
My guiding principle as your Superintendent is based on the belief that every child can and will attain the education and skills necessary to reach their unique potential and achieve a foundation for a meaningful and bright future. I am humbled and grateful to the voters of Amador County for placing their faith in me and I intend to work in partnership with our entire educational community to guide the Amador County Office of Education forward.
I have had the opportunity to play many diverse roles over my 39-year career, and those experiences have prepared me to lead our schools to meet the high expectations the community demands and our students deserve. This incredible journey has taught me to appreciate the work of educators and support staff, and to value the strength of a unified educational community.
Our focus in the Amador County Schools remains constant. We believe all children can learn. We care about each and every student, and we aim to show it by providing our best efforts as teachers, administrators, staff, mentors, and advocates. Our schools must continue to be safe places where students are engaged, challenged to meet the standards necessary for college or a career, and where fun is definitely encouraged. We want students to build productive and sustaining relationships, and know that our sole purpose is to support them as they become the productive citizens we know they can be.
I am excited about what is to come and I hope that you are too. Delivering excellence is still our top priority and I look forward to achieving that goal together.
Dr. Robert Russell
