Healy knows that empathy, curiosity, generosity and emotional intelligence are as important to student success as academics
Capital Region Educational Service District (ESD) 113 last week named Ryan Healy as their 2019 Regional Teacher of the Year. Healy teaches character development classes at Ridgeline Middle School in Yelm Community Schools.
The selection committee chose Healy for this award because of his clear vision for how he would serve the state as our regional teacher of the year and the alignment between his educational values and classroom practice.
Ryan Healy now serves as one of nine candidates chosen by their respective ESDs, who will be considered for Washington State Teacher of the Year. The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction will select and announce the state winner this fall.
