Brian Russell

My name is Brian Russell and I am one of the Physical Education teachers at John Adams Middle School. This is my third year teaching P.E. in Rochester and my fourth year working for Rochester Public Schools. 

I am originally from Rochester and attended Sunset Terrace Elementary, Kellogg Middle, and Century High School.  After graduation I attended Winona State University where I majored in Physical Education and Health Education as well as minored in Coaching and received my DAPE (Developmental Adapted Physical Education) license.  I also just finished my Master's Degree from Concordia - St. Paul University in Educational Leadership.  I am currently working on my Principal License. 

In my free time I enjoy coaching, spending time with my dog, and woodworking.  I coach 4th grade football, 4th/5th grade baseball, and high school wrestling.

I am looking forward to the school year!
