Mr. Pat Russman


I graduated from St. Patrick's in 1991, Graduaged from Olivet College in 1996, Graduated from Mary Grove College with Masters in Education.


I have been a teacher at Portland St. Patrick since 1997.

"I believe the students learn best when they know they are important.  I also believe that true learning takes place when the students take ownership of the learning process.  St. Patrick's is a great place to work, and I am proud to be a Shamrock.  The students and families are fun to be involved with.  I like the direction of the school and appreciate the efforts of all that make it great."
