About Ron

Hi! I am an expert middle school science teacher with ten years experience in grades six, seven and eight. I hold a bachelor degree in Earth Science from Texas A&M University and a master degree in education administration with principal certification from Lamar University. I know the Science TEKS and how to teach science using vocabulary, picture memory techniques and mnemonics. I am also a middle-school generalist and TEAM LEAD for grade seven at my current school. I have strong experience with special needs students including understanding and working with accommodations and learning disabilities.

I am married with grown kids, and now grand-kids, and own and run a boy's youth adventure camp over Spring Break and Summers. I teach field science, history of the westward expansion and introduction to leadership on trips from one to four weeks in the western US, Canada and Alaska. I live in Georgetown with my wife who is a high school counselor.

I hold the following Texas Teacher certifications:

4-8 Generalist
6-12 Life / Earth Sciences
Principal / Mid-management
