Mrs. Ryan's Class

A Digital Learning Hub for students and parents


My name is Nicole Ryan and I am a third grade teacher in Connecticut. I am the oldest sister in a large family and began my path to teaching at a young age, “teaching” my siblings and pets. I have worked in schools for as long as I can remember, first in my aunt’s and father’s classrooms as a volunteer, then as an intern and para-professional, and finally for the past several years as a classroom teacher.

I attended the University of Connecticut in the Integrated Bachelor’s/Master’s program and was blessed to find a job right away! I wholeheartedly love my students and my job. I am grateful every day to do this work.

When I am not teaching, or finding new teaching ideas on Pinterest, I enjoy spending quality time with my family, playing flute, singing, and I am dabbling in painting…more to come on this! I also love reading, going for long walks with my husband, and playing with my kitty, Flâneuse.

As I embark on this journey to earn my 6th Year Degree, I feel nervous and excited! I cannot wait to share what I learn with my colleagues, and most importantly, my students. I can’t wait to start this new journey!
