Ron Nash profile

Ron Nash is convinced that students thrive and grow as active learners in ways they do not when they are simply passive observers. As the years go by, predictably, watching teachers work may become less and less exciting. Classrooms ought to be places where students can be students.

In a career that has encompassed almost five decades, Ron has taught middle and high school social studies; he also served as an instructional coordinator and organizational development specialist. Ron retired in 2007 to create Ron Nash and Associates, Inc., a company dedicated to shifting students from passive observers to active participants in their own learning.

A national presenter and workshop facilitator, Ron has conducted seminars and workshops for thousands of teachers and administrators. On a national level, he has presented at conferences sponsored by ASCD, NBTPS, Learning Forward, Learning and the Brain, Learning Sciences International, and at Eric Jensen's Learning Brain Expo.

Ron has recently retired, having written 16 books and presented hundreds of workshops and conference sessions over the past 26 years. You can purchase his books by clicking on the covers below and connecting to his publishers. He can be contacted at
