My name is Ryan Ward and I have the privilege of being your child's 7th or 8th grade Physical Education Teacher.  I am excited to have your child in my class and inspire them to be the best versions of themselves!  

I am originally from Victoria, BC Canada and moved to the United States to attend Butler University (Indianapolis, IN) on a lacrosse scholarship.   After graduation, I moved to Minnesota to play professional lacrosse for the Minnesota Swarm. 

I have taught Physical Education and Health teacher since 2007 and have experience teaching kids at every grade level.  I am married with a 10-year old daughter and a 7-year old son.  Our family enjoys spending time together on a lake, being active, and traveling. I spend most of my free time driving kids to hockey or lacrosse commitments..
