Ron Makela


I am in my 30th year in Royalton! It is hard to believe I have been at it that long. My wife, Monica, is a 4th grade teacher at the elementary school. Our children are out of the house; sometimes it is eerily quiet. Erin, 29, is teaching 7th grade English in Worthington, MN. She is also in the process of writing her second novel and trying to publish the first one. Kyle, 26, works at the Linden Hills Market in Minneapolis. Curtis, 23, is finishing his German degree at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio. In February, he will be interviewing for a program which may take him to Japan next year. Tyler, 23, works in Duluth.

Currently, I teach English 10, English 11, and Composition I and II.
