Russ believes God called him into teaching during his 10th year of working in the business world after college. Russ discovered his passion for teaching middle school kids. They are at such an important stage his life, and it is a privilege to walk alongside them and guide in their faith journey. Russ loves to try to create a fun learning environment, but also have high expectations of them as students. They bring him much joy and he loves spending his days in the classroom with them, seeing them grow academically, socially and especially spiritually. Russ desires to create an environment where the students will get to know about God, but more importantly, experience Him. Russ is blessed to be a part of the DC community.
