Meet the Library Media Specialist

Ellon Ruschell

I am so excited to be joining the wonderful staff of Timonium Elementary School! I am coming from Mrs. RuschellShady Spring Elementary School, where I enjoyed seven years of teaching first, second, and third grade. This will be my first role as a Library Media Specialist. I have been working on my Masters in School Library Media at Towson University for the last several years in preparation for this transition into the library. I also attended Towson University for my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education.


I was born in New York but raised in Severna Park, Maryland. I married my husband, Derrin, in 2015 and we now live in Northern Harford County. I have four very spoiled cats at home named Louie, Lily, Alex, and Cora. I sometimes foster cats and kittens for the Humane Society. When I’m not at school, some of the things I like to do are volunteering at the Maryland Zoo, scrap booking, going to car shows and, of course, reading! I also love to try new and exciting things and to travel to new places.


As the Library Media Specialist at Timonium Elementary School, I will strive to foster a love of reading and help students become responsible digital citizens. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at
