Revell Family

RUSSELL - USD 407 is excited to announce Mrs. Katie Revell as the new instructional leader at Simpson Elementary School beginning July 1, 2021.  SES will see their current principal, Mr. Jordan Perez, move to  Ruppenthal Middle School as Principal for the next school year.


Mrs. Revell, her husband Tyson, and their three children will be moving to the USD 407 community this summer, as she looks forward to impacting students and families district-wide.  


Mrs. Revell's career of 11 years has been grounded in primary grade level education, having had great success in the classroom and as Title I Director in Ellinwood all of those years.  “Mrs. Revell’s foundation in character, integrity, communication, and instruction will match SES’ current positive energy and take us far,” says USD 407 Superintendent Shelly Swayne. 


Mrs. Revell offers these thoughts, “I have a teaching background in First Grade and Title 1. Setting up our littlest learners with strong academic skills has been a passion of mine for 11 years. My family is so excited about moving to Russell and becoming active members in the community. USD 407 has a wonderful reputation and I look forward to building upon the existing success of our staff and students.”
