Room 312

Greetings and salutations! My name is Dustin Russell (Russ) and I am entering my 13th year as a Minneapolis teacher, my 6th at Seward. This year, I will be teaching 7th and 8th graders U.S. Studies. I also have two different Explore classes I am very excited to teach. 6th, 7th, and 8th graders will have the opportunity to take either If You Build It, They Will Come or But Why?

If You Build It, They Will Come

-Do you ever find yourself wishing for an opportunity to make real tangible things, things like capes, fake mustaches, and pinatas? If so, I know a guy who can help give you the experiences of a lifetime! Completely not made up student reviews have said “It was the greatest thing I have ever built!” and “Wait, can we do that?”. Come one, come all for if you build it, they will come!

But Why?

This class wants you to ask why! Why is the sky blue? Are dog’s mouths really cleaner than a human’s (spoiler, they’re not)? We will be examining different myths, busting them, and finding out what drives the world around us!



If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. The easiest way to contact me is through email.
