Mr. Gerdes

Hello NFP Community!!  My name is Ron Gerdes, and I am the PE Teacher at North Forest Pines.

I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA.  I am a huge sports fan- the Steelers (NFL), Hurricanes (NHL), and UNC (college) are my favorites.  This will be my 21st year of teaching.  I taught in Las Vegas before moving to NC in 2004.  I used to be a second grade teacher before becoming the PE teacher at NFP in 2018.

I am married to Mrs. Gerdes (second grade teacher at NFP).  We have two wonderful daughters- Jordyn (17) and Madison (15).  I like to run, ride my mountain bike, and spend time with my family in my spare time.  I enjoy teaching my students about movement, exercise, and sports.

I am looking forward to working with our Falcons this school year!!
