Mr. Branum's Homepage
Hi! My name is Russell Branum and I could not be more excited to be here in Gainesville. My previous career was spent serving in the Army. I was fortunate enough to see much of the world which in turn increased my love for history. After leaving the Army I received my Bachelors degree from Belhaven University and a Master's in Military History from Norwich University. I am from Dallas, Texas but my father was in the Army for 32 years so I am a somewhat a citizen of the world.
I love spending time traveling and doing various outdoor activities with my family. I am married to the love of my life and I have two amazing children. Maci is 8 and Jake is 11 and they keep us busy with all their various activities.
I am hoping to share my love and passion for history with all my students by making learning fun. Don't expect to many handouts and boring lectures in my class. I want the students to engage and be involved in our class. So let's start the journey. I'm not saying it will be easy but it will be worth it.
