Russell HessTeacher, Math 6-12
Hello, my name is Russell Hess. I grew up in Pennsylvania my Father was a family physician and my mother was an elementary school teacher. I was the 8th of 9 children so I grew up in a busy house. As a teenager I worked in a cabinet shop making custom kitchen cabinets. When I was 20, I moved to California to go to college.
I started going to college with a desire to teach math. As I started taking Mathematics courses I enjoyed them so much that I began picking up more math courses even though they were not in my major. As a result I graduated Central Washington University with two majors, one in Mathematics and the other in Secondary Mathematics Education.
This is my 9th year teaching high school and I have taught all high school math courses and several science courses. Currently I am teaching AP Statistics and AP Computer Science. My love teaching and look forward to coming to work every day. I also enjoy backpacking, snowboarding and most of all, traveling to visit my family.
