Meet the Library Media Specialist

Ellon Ruschell

I am so happy to be part of the wonderful staff of Mrs. RuschellTimonium Elementary School! Before teaching at TES, I was a classroom teacher at Shady Spring Elementary School, where I enjoyed seven years of teaching first, second, and third grade. I joined the TES team in 2017.  In the summer of 2018, I finished my Masters in School Library Media at Towson University. I also attended Towson University for my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. In 2021, I earned a post-baccalaureate certificate in Autism Studies at Towson University so I could better support the students here at TES.


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 am a cat lover with way too many cats at home! 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 [email protected]
