Mr. Russell has been a teacher in the Basehor-Linwwod school district since the fall of 2009. Prior to teaching, I worked in a physical therapy clinic as an athletic trainer and rehabilitation tech. During that time, I was also competing as a professional track and field athletes during the warmer season. I am a graduate of The University of Kansas and was an All-American in track and field (eventhough I am Canadian). I married my wife in 2008, the same year I attended the Beijing Olympics, where I competed in the Javelin throw. We have 3 kids and love being outdoors with them. One of favorite things to do is travel as a family.
