Ron has a strong belief in the value of trades and his primary educational role was to introduce students to trades as a potential career.
Ron Chatterson has been a teacher for 35 years in a variety of small communities in eastern Saskatchewan including Norquay, Carrot River, and Lemberg. For the last 14 years, he has been teaching a range of subjects including math, English, Career and Work Experience, and Practical and Applied Arts classes including Carpentry and Construction, Design Studies, Drafting, and others at Charlebois Community School in Cumberland House, Saskatchewan.
He has also had an avid interest in the construction industry since he was 16 years old. Ron has a strong belief in the value of trades and his primary educational role was to introduce students to trades as a potential career, as students in many communities have little knowledge about or exposure to the huge number of trades opportunities available to them.
The Pisim Project brought the perfect opportunity to incorporate trades education and training with core curriculum. This project engaged the students with a variety of trades and also highlighted the importance of a solid foundation in math and science no matter which career path they choose to follow.
Ron has a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and English and a certificate in Education from the University of Saskatchewan. He also has trades training from Bemidji State University in Minnesota. Ron is also the in-class Driver Education teacher for Cumber-land House.
