Russell Brown

Russell Brown is a veteran teacher who currently teaches social studies at Poudre High School (Fort Collins, CO). He was also part of the founding team and is a current board member of Compass Community Collaborative School (Fort Collins, CO). His articles have appeared in Phi Delta Kappan, Principal Leadership, American Diplomacy, and The American Historian. Among the awards he has received include: a commendation from State of Colorado House of Representatives (2017), the Daughters of the American Revolution Outstanding Teacher of American History for Colorado (2014), and the Poudre School District Excellence in Education Award (2008). However, the greatest honor he has received has come from those students who have maintained contact with him after graduation, resulting in many deep friendships. In addition, he has the incredible distinction of being the officiant for the weddings of sixteen former students (and counting).
