Welcome to Mrs. Ryan's Classroom!
Dear 4th grader,
My name is Mrs. Ryan and this is my 19th year teaching at Westmoreland Road Elementary School. Currently, I teach English Language Arts to my homeroom, as well as Science to all 4th graders! I absolutely love being a teacher and I look forward to all of the great times we will share this year.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our two small children, and our dog. We love to be outdoors and hike, run, swim, and play! I also love to read, play volleyball, and cook. Three fun facts about me are that my husband and I also went to Westmoreland Road (actually we were in the same 4th grade class), my favorite food is macaroni and cheese, and my family cheers for the Philadelphia Eagles!
I like to approach my classroom with an atmosphere of family. My expectations are simple: be prepared everyday with all work completed, pay attention in class and always try your best, and treat others with kindness.
You are going to be working with two other teachers this year when you switch classes; Mrs. Alder for Social Studies, and Mrs. Lawrence for Math. They are both fantastic teachers and you are going to learn so much from them this year!
I always want you to come to me with any concerns you may have, and I ask that your parents contact me at any time with questions or concerns they might have. I strongly believe in a close relationship between home and school, and your parents and I will be in close contact this year. It is going to be a wonderful year!
