My name is Bob Rip and I am currently teaching biology at Ontario Christian High. I received my B.A. degree from Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa and continued teaching certification from Central Washington University in Ellensberg, Washington. I have been teaching biology at Ontario Christian since 2001 and previously (21 years) taught all the science courses at Sunnyside Christian High in Sunnyside, Washington.
I grew up on Whidbey Island in the Puget Sound of Washington State. In my spare time I enjoy reading, camping, hiking and photography, and recreational volleyball and golf.
Teaching and studying biology opens the world of God’s living creations. It provides the opportunity to discover and understand the relationships and complexities of living organisms to each other and the abiotic world. Understanding the complexities of the biotic world reflects the characteristics of creator God. Including an all powerful, everywhere present, sovereign God who rules His entire creation.
