Ron Coia teaches AP English Language and AP Government at Kubasaki High School in Okinawa, Japan. He has been in DoDEA since 2004, stationed in Korea, Germany, and now Japan. Before moving overseas, he taught in both alternative and suburban schools in Portland, Oregon.

Ron first worked with overseas military youth while serving in Germany with the Air Force, volunteering with a chapel youth program. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree at Multnomah University in Portland and a Masters of Arts degree at Boston University.

Mr. Coia has worked with the full spectrum of students: from troubled students with behavior issues to the middle-of-the-road kids to the top-performers and valedictorians of the school. This has instilled in him that no matter the background, students need a good teacher who can show them the power of words.

Ron lives in Okinawa with his wife Kristie and their three children.
