Lee Brownell

It's GREAT to be a Golden Tiger!  I graduated from RHS in 1986, attended NWSCC and graduated from the University of North Alabama with a BSEd in elementary education.  I married my wife Deborah in 1990 and we moved to Georgia. I taught in Meriwether County for 8 years (that's where they film The Walking Dead).  I got my Master's in Middle School Education at LaGrange College and my EdS in Middle School Education from Columbus State University.  During that time, I had two daughters, Shelby and Chloe.  I returned to Russellville Middle School to teach math in 1998.  I taught here for 17 years while my daughters went to school and graduated.  I started the Robotics and Rocketry teams here in 2008.  In 2015, I went to work for the Alabama Math, Science and Technology Initiative at UNA.  I worked there for 6 years as a science and math specialist, helping coach teachers in the region and working with other specialists across the state, creating professional development opportunities.  It was very rewarding and helped me become a better teacher.  I am now teaching 8th grade science and a STEM class again here at RMS.  My wife works with Upward Bound at NWSCC in Phil Campbell.  My children have both graduated from college and are working. Forever Golden!
