Mr. Ronald Gaitz

Spanish II Maestro

Saludos de Ball High School!  My name is Ronnie Gaitz and I have been teaching Spanish here since the 2018-19 school year.  Ball High School is an excellent place to learn and work.  I challenge my students to do their best everyday.  I encourage parents to be active participants in their child’s education.  My philosophy is that you get out of the class what you put into it.  The student should be the center of the educational process.  I am the facilitator. 
I am certified in the states of Texas and Arizona to teach Spanish, Social Studies, and English as a Second Language at the secondary level and have been teaching for some 28 years.  My wife and I have been married for thirty-one years and we have two daughters, a son-in-law, and a beautiful granddaughter.  When I am not pursuing my passion for teaching Spanish, I play the clarinet and bass clarinet.  I am excited about this school year!
