Country Day School - Michael Ronski

Math Teacher

I grew up in Ohio and received my bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Cincinnati.   After a 10 year career as a Reactor Engineer at a Nuclear Power plant in Wisconsin and completion of a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin system, I began a new career as a research scientist developing new products for Kimberly Clark.  Five years later, my family relocated to Puerto Rico and I started a consulting company to provide custom computer programming and training to companies.

A move to South East Asia offered an opportunity to start teaching in a classroom.  While living in Malaysia and teaching at Mont’Kiara International School, I completed my teaching license program and received my license through the State of Florida.  I spent two years teaching at Singapore American School, the highest-rated American school in Singapore.  After accepting an opportunity to move to Costa Rica and CDS, I am continuing my career with the excellent staff, students, and family at CDS with the goal of establishing CDS as one of the best math programs in Costa Rica. 

A continual theme in my career is teaching and helping others develop critical thinking skills.  One of the greatest joys that I experience is the “Ah-ha” moment when the person that I am helping finally masters a problem or issue that has been perplexing them.  I am very grateful for the opportunity to teach students and to be part of the CDS family.

 Aside from teaching, I am an instructor and practitioner of martial arts and am pursuing a second-degree black belt in Choi Kwang Do.  I enjoy the outdoors; golfing, gardening, and especially time in and near to the ocean.   

My wife and I have two daughters that attend high school at CDS.  We are avid travelers and have enjoyed the opportunities to explore the areas that we have lived.  Costa Rica has a plethora of things to offer and I look forward to growing personally and professionally in the extraordinary environment.
