Ron Makela


I am in my 31st 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, 30, 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, 27, works and lives in Duluth. Curtis, 24, is in Wittenberg, Germany, teaching English in the high school. Tyler, 24, works in Duluth at The Positively Third Street Bakery.

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