Biography:

Welcome!! 2022/2023 is year 7 for me to work as the High School Counselor and as a Southern Tornado. I am excited to be here and if I were to able to sum by job up in one phrase, it would be, "I am here to help kids get through high school". One goal I have is to be approachable; I want the students at Southern to feel comfortable speaking with me about their concerns, interests, and challenges. --- Previously, I worked with grades 3-5 as the Guidance Counselor at Meigs Intermediate School from 2013-2016. I also am retired from the military and am a great resource for students considering that career. I was born in Fremont, Ohio and moved to this area at age 15. I am married to my best friend, Misty. Misty works in this same district as a kindergarten teacher. I have a daughter, Sheena. She is in her 1st year of teaching first grade students. She lives in New Mexico.  I have a son, Rusty. He graduated from at Meigs High School. He is currently a senior attending Ohio University pursuing a teaching degree in history. He will be a student teacher here this year as a social studies teacher. I have two stepsons, Crenson and Kyler. I was lucky enough to be their school counselor for at least some of their high school. --- I am here to help our students in a variety of ways, some of which includes: transcripts, scheduling, scholarships, career planning. college admissions, and personal growth and development. --- Please feel free to contact me at russ.fields@southernlocal.net or (740)-949-4222 ext 2400
