Ms. Ryan has taught in the NYC public schools for over 30 years and at Eleanor Roosevelt for 10 years. She is pleased to have the opportunity to work with the wonderful staff and students at Eleanor Roosevelt. Ms. Ryan received her BA in English Literature from an overpriced, highly selective college and had the good fortune to receive her MA in English literature from CCNY and pursue further coursework at the CUNY Graduate Center. This year she is looking forward to teaching Global Literature I, Creative Writing, AP English Language and Composition. She also advises Film Club.
