Empowering Students to Change the World

Raised in Oberlin and having spent 25 years teaching in the school system from which he graduated, high school history teacher Kurt Russell is a beloved fixture of the community. Always ready to “ask the tough questions,” Mr. Russell was recently awarded the title of 2022 Ohio Teacher of the Year. Now, he intends to use this new platform to make sure that all Ohio students see themselves reflected in the curriculum as well as spread his love for education across the Buckeye State.
