Ron Staszkow, Professor Emeritus - Mathematics Department

In my 30 years at Ohlone College, I founded the Math Learning Center and taught classes from basic math through the first year of calculus. I specialized in developmental mathematics and math for the liberal arts student. In my retirement, I continue being involved in math education by writing, consulting, tutoring, and teaching an occasional class.

Dianne, my wonderful wife of more than 40 years, and I have five children (all university graduates!) and ten grandchildren. I enjoy fishing, golfing, traveling, spending time with my grandkids, and doing home repair/craft projects.
