A “jack of all trades”, Austin Russell has experience in teaching all four core subjects to K-8 scholars, specializing in STEM fields. His desire to apply his Math and Science background to technology-driven learning was cultivated in STEM AdvancED certified schools where he has taught the Robotics, Science Lab, Physical Education, and Studio Art classes, and served as lead teacher for middle school Math and Science courses. Austin shares his ability to provide students with a caring, collaborative, and positive environment for learning. He regularly contributes to school culture with those same values as he works with his colleagues. A favorite quote of his from Desmond Tutu says “…my humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together”. Austin is a firm believer in honesty, grace, and the golden rule of empathy that fosters deep learning of oneself and the world we live in. With The New School, Austin is excited to collaborate with the brilliant and interesting minds leading the next generation.
