Pete Rusaw, MS

Assistant Professor of Mathematics


I joined George Fox as a visiting assistant professor of mathematics in 2017 after serving in the department on an adjunct basis during the 2016-17 academic year. I also taught math at Newberg High School in the year prior to arriving at George Fox, and since 2001 I served as pastor of Wapato Valley Church in Gaston, Oregon.

I taught math for 22 years (1994 to 2016) at Forest Grove High School and also taught the subject at Portland Community College from 2002 to 2004. I also coached three sports – baseball, softball and volleyball – at the high school level in the early 2000s.
