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, Social Geography, Modern Military History 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 and our 3 kids. Maria is the High School/Middle School Secretary at Rock Valley. My oldest daughter Kensley is a 2nd grader at Rock Valley this year. Our 2nd daughter Jaylynn is in preschool and our youngest boy Keegan will be 1 in 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!
