Julie Russo began working at McKee Homes in June of 2012. As the Director of Administration, she prides herself on hiring and managing a top-notch office and sales staff. She also helps McKee Homes support several nonprofit programs including the Alzheimer’s Association, Helping a Hero, The Fayetteville Urban Ministry and Kids Peace.
Prior to working for McKee Homes, Julie was an elementary school teacher for the Wake County School District. She taught in several schools in the Raleigh and Knightdale area and currently volunteers in Wake County Schools on a regular basis. She has a strong desire to help students read, comprehend and solve math word problems. She has developed a system, which fosters the importance of reading comprehension when solving a math word problem. Through the use of Structures of Equality, Julie teaches children to diagram a math story prior to solving. This technique encourages students to fully process the meaning of the math story.
She hopes to expand this program to the Fayetteville and surrounding areas schools.-
