Mr. Keaven Russell

Hello everyone! My name is Coach Russell and I am MECME's Physical Education teacher. I am really excited about working with each of my students this school year! The GYM (multipurpose room) is the place where magic and excitement of learning new skills, to become fit for life, will happen. Together we are going to show the world that we can be fit for life!

Physical education has always been a passion of mine and just something I am really good at doing. Getting students to perform skills at high levels and challenging them to become the best all-around student is a gift that I have been blessed with.

This is my sixth year teaching. I am certified to teach K-6 elementary education and K-12 physical education & health. To learn more about me, please visit my  PE Class website


What excited me about our magnet theme...
What excites me is that at MECME we have the power to influence youth's actions and choices that affect the environment, which will affect the health of the planet. The health of the planet will in result influence our own personal health and wellbeing, as well as our communities, families, and economies.

What I want the community, parents, students to know most about your class, yourself or MECME this year?

Student will learn and develop healthful living skills through engaging physical activities and will have many opportunities to get active through clubs, extracurricular activities, school and community events.
