March 25, 2021 – Congratulations to Shari Russano, art teacher at Lakes Elementary, on being named the 2021 Hartland Consolidated Schools Teacher of the Year! Parents filled the original Facebook post with well-wishes and congratulations. One parent said, “My favorite is the extra touch she did for parents by saving a piece of art work she did yearly with the students, and presented the packet to the parents at the 4th grade farewell. 8 years later it’s still a favorite memory.” Another exclaimed that Mrs. Russano is still one of her child’s favorite teachers. Yet another said, “Thank you for bringing art to my son and all the Hartland Schools community.” From the entire community, thank you Mrs. Russano for your dedication to Hartland students and inspiring them to be creative every day!
