Welcome to Mr. Russell’s Page


Welcome to an exciting year.  I am thrilled to have you in this class, and I look forward to learning a lot from each and every one of you.  I have been at DSA for several years (taking a year off). In my time at DSA, I have taught English and Social Studies courses (grades ranging from 7th grade English to 11th -12th grade AP courses in both Social Studies and English).  I have a passion for learning – I love the humanities, language, literature, history, and politics.  I am excited to learn just as much from you and your experiences as you will hopefully learn from me and my experiences.

We all bring something unique to class, and I want to use each of your strengths to make class the best it can be.  All I ask is that you come prepared to learn, share, and have fun learning.  I am here to guide you and watch you teach and gain new insight, so please feel free to contact me anytime you have a question, comment, or just wish to share something interesting.  My contact information can be found on the sidebar.  Let’s make this year one that you will remember.

“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound or stab us. If the book we’re reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow to the head, what are we reading for?” — Franz Kafka
