Russell - A.K.A. Dr. Eves - The American Patriot
Over 25 years teaching, administrative, and leadership experience. Primary subjects taught - history, social studies, math, but also credentialed in science and Language Arts. My first love is American History. Currently working as a Teacher On Special Assignment - K-12 Curriculum Specialist for History / Social Studies.
MY TEACHING STYLE
I teach in a style that builds upon a student's natural curiosity and inquiry. Lessons and activities are geared to guide a student toward discovering the lesson objectives as opposed to direct instruction or lecture style. Students regularly feel the drive to go further and learn more.
