My name is Emily Ryan and the 2021-22 school year will be my 14th year teaching 3rd grade at Standing Bear and my 18th year teaching for Omaha Public Schools. I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and earned my English as a Second Language Endorsement from Concordia.
I have two wonderful daughters. My oldest daughter, Shelby, graduated from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in May 2021. She is currently attending Creighton University to earn her Accelerated Nursing Degree. Sophie, my youngest daughter, is a sophomore at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Our family also has an absolutely uncontrollable miniature golden doodle named Lexi. My free time is spent walking, gardening, reading, shopping, and watching HGTV. I am learning to paddle board!
I look forward to a wonderful year with the 3rd graders in room 23! Please feel welcome to contact me whenever questions or concerns arise!
Your third grader should be reading 10-30 minutes nightly. He/she can read books from home or library books from Standing Bear. Third graders can read silently or to a family member. Please be sure the books your child is reading are not too difficult. We will be learning the "I PICK" method of choosing books.
I PICK Good-Fit Books
1. Purpose-Why do I want to read it?
2. Interest-Does it interest me?
3. Comprehend-Am I understanding what I am reading?
4. Know-I know most of the words.
