There will be a new teacher in the halls of BHS. Mr. Scott Russell will be filling Mr. McDaris’s position as a Social Studies teacher on December 17th. Russell will finish this semester teaching Civics and Economics, American History 1, and Psychology. Next semester he will be teaching World History, American History, and Honors Psychology.
Russell, in addition to teaching, enjoys watching College basketball, watching and coaching soccer, as well as spending time with his family. He has a wife, Jenny, who teaches at the middle school, a son, Jackson, who goes to Brevard Middle School, and a daughter, Katie, who attends Brevard High School.
When asked about what will be new to him, he said that SMART lunch is something he will have to work on understanding. He is most excited about being able to be teaching in the same county his wife teaches, and the county is children go to school in.
Russell has taught in Henderson County, Mecklenburg County, as well teaching in Transylvania County. He is going into his twentieth year teaching, and it certified to teach both English and Social Studies, as well as a National Boards Certification. He’s very ready to come to Brevard High School and work with it’s students.
