FORMER SWEATHOG RON PALILLO IS NOW A HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER
Did you ever wonder what happened to Ron Palillo, who played the smart student Arnold Horshack on Welcome Back, Kotter? Ironically, Ron is now a TEACHER at a charter school in West Palm Beach, Florida. After moving back to New York in the 90’s where he lectured and did off Broadway plays, Ron, now 60, was offered a job teaching 9th grade acting at the G-Star School of the Arts in Florida. He says it’s exactly the kind of progressive high school he would love to have gone to himself. The former sweathog is a big hit with the students.
