At SD Since

Katie Ryan grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her first job as a camp counselor set her career path for life, and she has never veered far from her love of teaching children. She has been an Americorps Service member, taught science and environmental education to students in grades K-12, and directed service-learning programs in both schools and the non-profit sector. Katie holds a BS in Biology from Lewis and Clark College, a CA Mild/Moderate Resource Specialist Credential and a M.Ed in Special Education/Educational Therapy. Katie has 12 years of experience as a Learning Specialist working in private and independent schools. She is thrilled to be a part of the San Domenico community and enjoys collaborating with teachers, parents, and students alike. Katie’s favorite activity is spending time exploring the Bay Area with her husband and two young children. You can also find Katie hiking a mountain trail, getting crafty on her sewing machine, or drinking a good cup of tea.

“My favorite part of being a member of the San Domenico community is enthusiasm of the students and the commitment of the faculty.”
