Mr. Daniel Russell


Welcome to my class and I am so excited to get to know you and your student. This is my fourth year teaching and my second at Lewis-Palmer Middle School. I worked at Falcon Middle School for the past two years teaching both 7th and 8th-grade social studies. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) with my degree in History in 2016. I have had the opportunity to travel all over the world to experience many different cultures and I bring those experiences into my classroom. The world is much bigger than our little bubble and I want to encourage my students to explore as much of the world around them as they can.

My hope is to create a positive working relationship between myself, the students, and their parents. I hope that I can build your trust to show you that I truly have your student's best interest in mind. If you ever feel like you are unclear please do not hesitate to send me an email. I will make sure to give you a call back as soon as I can to help in any way that I can.

I am also a track coach at a High School in the district and have had the opportunity to work with some amazing athletes (State record holders & state champions) all over Colorado through club track. This year I will hopefully be coaching football at LPMS (if we get a season) and continuing to coach track!
