Hello, my name is James Rone.  I am a fifth grade teacher here at Whittier.  I have been a licensed teacher for just a short while, but I spent over a decade working in public schools as an artist/educator and curriculum designer for CLIMB Theatre, The Bakken Museum, Stillwater Public Schools, and the East Metro Integration District, among other places.  
 
I received my Bachelors Degree in Theatre and Political Science at the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2001 and received my teaching license from St. Mary's University in 2012.  I joined the Whittier Staff in 2014.  
 
I live in Minneapolis with my wife, Erin.  We spend our free time performing music, dance, and improv around the Twin Cities.  Maybe we'll see you at a show!
