Ms. Meghann Ryan
I am very excited to join the Junction team as the Resource Specialist. I received my Bachelor's degree in Psychology with a concentration in Child Development in 2005. I began teaching shortly after and have been teaching for approximately ten years. I have a Level 2 Education Specialist Instruction Credential with an emphasis in Positive Behavior Support.
My family and I moved to Palo Cedro in August of 2015 and my two children began attending Junction Elementary/Junction Middle School. I had the opportunity to work as a substitute teacher at both school sites.. Through this process, I was able to meet most of the students and staff members and I realized that Junction has amazing children and wonderful teachers that voluntarily go the extra mile for our children. This is a team that I am proud to join.
In my spare time away from teaching, I enjoy being with my family and our pets, reading, visiting new places or exploring places from the past and spending time in my garden ( which I am sadly finding out that my company is all I really have to offer to the garden, but I love it either way). I absolutely love animals and have a passion for working with children or those in need. My teaching philosophy includes learning what the students need first and then teaching according to their individual needs, modeling compassion and understanding and always treating each student with respect. I combine academics with social and emotional skills, life skills and art/play in efforts to create a productive and enjoyable learning environment for each individual. I am excited to begin this new aventure and to work with your children.
