Russel Shaw

Early Years, Elementary
Russel Shaw grew up in a small rural town in British Columbia, spending many hours watching and helping his grandparents tend to gardens, cows, and chickens. Even after over 30 years of teaching, and being far away from the farm, Russel still draws on those childhood memories as times of learning, exploration, wonder, and a source for ideas in developing science and design curriculum. Currently, the Science & Design Specialist at Korea International School, Seoul Campus, Russel has also taught as a homeroom teacher in grades 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. He has taught Gifted and Talented, trained 100s of teachers in hands-on science methods, worked with Outward Bound in Boston, and created and led programs in several science museums around the US. Still, a science geek at heart, Russel's latest passion is taking care of 3 chickens and rooster that reside alongside the Seoul Campus garden.
