Hello! My name is Nathan Schafer and I teach High School Social Studies to Juniors and Seniors at Rock Valley. The classes that I teach include United States History, Government, Current Events, Ethics, and Sociology. I really enjoy getting to share my passion for Social Studies with my students. I also coach 9th grade boys basketball and Junior High boys track. 


I currently live in Hull with my wife Maria. We have two little girls, Kensley who is 7 and will be a 1st grader at Rock Valley this year, and Jaylynn who is 3 and will be going to preschool this year. We are also excited to add a 3rd child to the family this November. During my spare time I enjoy watching sports, golfing, and spending time with family. 


My Education

I graduated from Boyden-Hull in 2006. I went to South Dakota State for History education and graduated in 2010. I got my first job at Sheldon as a Special Education teacher. After two years at Sheldon I started teaching at Rock Valley and absolutely love it here!
