Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Dave Russell
My name is Dave Russell and I have had the pleasure of serving as Fearn’s principal since the 2014-2015 school year. My educational career began in West Aurora when I student-taught in first grade at Smith Elementary School. I was then hired at Greenman Elementary where I taught both third and first grade for a combined six years. I next began my administrative career as the assistant principal at Hall Elementary for two years and McCleery Elementary for one year before moving on to Nicholson Elementary, where I spent four years serving as the principal. I now live in Naperville with my wife Meghan and our two children Ryan (7) and Genevieve (4).
I thoughly enjoy the students, their families, and our staff here at Fearn. It has been a pleasure serving as the principal for the past three year. I look forward to the upcoming year!
