Mr. Timothy P. Ryan

My wife and I cannot be happier to be living here on the beautiful coastal community of Swansboro.  We moved to Swansboro after I retired from the United States Marine Corps in 2008.  My wife Joanie and I are both from Pennsylvania but cannot deal with the cold weather there anymore.  We moved here to be closer to my kids and to live in a slower and gentler community.

I have known for years that I wanted to teach kids and to help them find their untapped potential in becoming productive citizens in our communities.  I believe in giving back to the community, and teaching is an honorable way to contribute to the community.  I took the long road to accomplish this goal to teach, but I did it and I am only looking forward at this point.  I taught 4th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies for the past four years at Queens Creek Elementary School and I am looking forward to my first year here at Swansboro Middle School teaching 6th grade Social Studies.

I am still a Pennsylvanian at heart, I still support the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburg Penguins, and Penn State football. 

I look forward to working with all the students and staff here at Swansboro Middle School.
