Mr. Rasavage and family

My name is James Michael Rasavage II.

It is my 13th year at Rock Ridge Elementary, and 18th year as an educator. After a 3 wonderful years as a 4th grade teacher I am back in 5th grade. 

Teaching is my passion. I began my education as an environmental scientist.  I have an Environmental Science degree from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania where I was educated in Geology, Hydrology, Mineralogy, Astronomy, and Meteorology.  I also hold a master’s degree in Elementary Education from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.  I consider math, science, critical thinking, and communication my strengths as an educator. 

I am the advisor/founder for Rock Ridge’s recycling club: Green Team.  I initiated and developed this after school program in 2004 with the belief that it is my responsibility to teach the next generation to be environmentally aware and understand the importance of conservation in our community. 

I am so excited to start another amazing year. Go eagles!
