I would like to extend a huge welcome back to my extended family—the students, parents, staff, and athletes of CSAS that are such an important part of my life. Towards the end of each summer, I always find myself anxiously awaiting the new school year. Teaching and coaching are simply parts of who I am, so every school year is a fulfilling, challenging, and transforming experience that enriches my life.
Yours in the educating and raising of our children,
About Ron Nance
Education: Bachelor's in Secondary Education: English from UTC
Why are you at CSAS? I strongly believe in the power of "unity in diversity." CSAS is one of the few schools where one can teach a student body that is ethnically and socioeconomically diverse. I also believe the Paideia model to be the best practice for educating both the cognitive and affective domains.
Family: two children, Jesseca (20) and Colby (17); a black German Shepherd named Lakota and a black and white Springer Spaniel named Gracie
Hobbies: Rock climbing (primarily bouldering and sport), playing music, writing, running, soccer, mountain biking, backpacking, reading, fishing, carving
Favorite book: The Hidden Words of Baha'i. This book is composed of spiritual aphorisms that contain the essence of the teachings of Baha'i (translated as "Glory of God"), the founder of the Baha'i faith.
Favorite sport: rock climbing
Favorite sports team: the national soccer teams of Argentina and Brazil
Favorite quote: "O SON OF BEING! Love Me that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant." This quote reminds me to open my heart to God so that His love will not be barred from reaching me and transforming my soul.
Favorite subject when you were a student: Science
