Russ Connell, an English teacher at The Donoho School, was recently certified as part of the National board of Certified Teachers. The certification is obtained after completion of a voluntary assessment program which recognizes “effective and accomplished teachers who meet high standards based on what teachers should know and be able to do.” The certification complements the teacher’s state license, and is valid for 10 years.
Connell has been a teacher at Donoho since the fall of 2004 and is also the varsity golf coach for the Falcons and sponsor of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Students. He is married to Karen Lewis Connell and has two children, Edwin and Estella.
