Eagle Eye: What inspired you to become a teacher?

Ron Wilson: I have always enjoyed learning about new concepts and sharing what I have learned.  It started at a young age in athletics and carried me into my teaching career.

EE: How long have you been teaching?

RW: I have been teaching for 21 years.

EE: Have you always taught at Tyrone? If not, where else?

RW: I started teaching at Juniata Valley, but was only there for ½ year.  I was filling in for a teacher that was on sabbatical. I taught 7th and 9th grade science while I was there.  At the end of that year, I went to Punxsutawney and taught there for two years.  While at Punxsy, I taught astronomy to 6, 7 and 8th grade students.  At the end of that second year a job came open at Tyrone and I came here to teach Earth Science.

EE: What is your favorite memory as a teacher?

RW: There have been too many to pick out just one.  I see something amazing from the kids that I work with just about every day.

EE:If you weren’t teaching right now, what do you think you would have done with your life?

RW: If I weren’t teaching, I think that I would have really enjoyed working as a geologist.

EE: Where did you attend high school?

RW: I graduated from Bellwood.

EE: Where did you attend college?

RW: I attended Penn State for my bachelors degree and I am currently attending California University of Pennsylvania and working on my masters degree.

EE: What’s your favorite book?

RW: I read constantly, but unfortunately I have a really short attention span.  So, most of what I read is very short.  Since this is that case, I really don’t have a favorite book.

EE: What is your favorite sport and sports team?

RW: Wrestling is my favorite sport and I follow Penn State very closely.  I also really enjoy college football and follow Penn State there as well.  I have been a Minnesota Vikings fan (as painful as it has been) since I was very young.  I also watch the Pirates and Penguins in baseball and hockey really often.

EE: What are some of your favorite hobbies?

RW: I really enjoy spending time with my family.  I have a great wife and four awesome kids and like to spend time with them as much as possible.  We go camping often and my entire family are sports fanatics.

    Mr. Wilson has always been a favorite and an awesome teacher 🙂 He not only is very passionate about what he teaches, he is also fun and most importantly has a sense of humor !!! It was always fun to tease him because he coaches wrestling in Bellwood lol- Way to go Mr. Wilson !!?
