Without Ron Strohm, robotics wouldn’t be a part of students’ experience at Alta. This funny, dedicated, motivating teacher has pioneered a first-rate robotics program at the school that attracts students and families from throughout the District. He built private community partnerships, secured tens of thousands of dollars for students pursuing 21st
century STEM career paths, and continues to mentor and lead other teachers in the field of engineering. It’s not uncommon to see Strohm at the school from 6:30 a.m. until late at night during robotics season, not to mention Saturdays, when he helps students work on STEM projects. For these reasons and more, Alta High is proud to choose Ron Strohm as the 2019 Teacher of the Year.
