Assistant Principal

My name is Joshua Russell and I have been serving as an educator in Desoto County since 2002.  I graduated from Southaven High School in 1997 and from Mississippi State University in 2001 with a degree in Elementary Education.  In 2015, I received a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University.  My teaching experience began at DeSoto Central Middle School in 2002 where I taught primarily 6th grade math and science. In 2011, I moved to Hernando Middle School so that I could be closer my home.  The 2018-2019 school year will be my first at Horn Lake Intermediate as Assistant Principal and I couldn't be more excited.  I live with my wife, Leslie and three children (Garrison-8, Ellis-2, and Simon-2) in Coldwater, MS.


I am extremely excited to become part of HLIS and know that we will have a fantastic school year! Go Eagles! #EaglesSoar
