Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Ryan Thompson
My name is Ryan Thompson and I am looking forward to spending my 8th year as a teacher with you. My wife, Shannon, and I both grew up in Northern Colorado, though we were both born in Southern California. We have been married for eight years and have two wonderful daughters; Emma is five and Alice was born at the end of March 2019! Shannon went to school at UNC in Greeley and is currently a teacher in Windsor. I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a bachelors in Social Studies Education and then completed two masters degrees at the American College of Education in Curriculum Development and Educational Leadership.
My whole family are scuba diving enthusiasts and it is the thing we love to do most. Recently I completed my advanced master diver certifications to allow me to lead my own scuba adventures!
I am also an avid reader and writer. In fact, if you look around closely you will rarely see me without a notebook, journal, or my Kindle near by. Two years ago I achieved a life long goal of mine by writing and publishing my first young adult novel, titled Achilles The Making of a Hero. It is currently available on Amazon. I am currently writing the sequel.
