My name is Todd Ronnander and I am currently teaching science and English, a refreshing change. The past three years, I taught exclusively math.
I grew up in Wisconsin, the child of two teachers, so you can imagine the words, “that’s the last job I’d ever do,” escaped my lips.
In 1999, I brought our family to Alaska and spent 12 years in Nenana to answer the lure of running dogs–you can see my canine alter ego at the left. We moved to Montana for a couple of years and are now happy to be back in Alaska.
Having eclectic experiences and educational interests has been a positive boon as a teacher. It has been years since I’ve taught earth science, so this course makes some sense as a finisher for my graduate degree. Chances are, in the small schools I love, I will be teaching earth science again.
