Today, we will introduce you to teacher Ron Bushbaum.
Teaching position/extracurriculars: I'll be teaching 8th grade math at . I also look forward to refereeing some rugby matches in the area.
Hometown/Current community: I grew up in Dumont, IA, lived in northern Minnesota for 17 years and now live in Shorewood, WI.
Education/Experience: Luther College, Decorah, IA. My background is primarily education. I also worked outfitting canoes trips in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
Do you have any connections to Whitefish Bay? Although I do not have a connection to Whitefish Bay, I do look forward to working in a community and district committed to high student academic achievement with an emphasis on professional development and strong mentorship.
Hobbies: Passions include, but are not limited to: Travel, rugby, fitness, outdoor recreation (canoeing, hiking, XC skiing, snowshoeing, camping, hunting, fishing), construction and handyman projects, spending time with my girlfriend, Kim.
Favorite vacation you've ever taken: Every vacation is a great vacation! Outstanding vacation destination to date was the touring around New Zealand's south island after completing a work contract in Antarctica (also an amazing place, but nothing like New Zealand).
