Mrs. Katie Ryan

My name is Katie Ryan and I grew up in Iowa City and attended Longfellow as a child! I am super excited to be back at Longfellow as a half-time Title I teacher. This is my 4th year in this role. Before that, I taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade at Wickham in Coralville. My husband, Kirk, taught at Lucas Elementary for 10 years and is now the principal at Clear Creek Elementary in Oxford. Our son, Henry, is starting 4th grade at Lucas; and our daughter, Julia, is 4 and will attend La Petite Academy this year. I love teaching students all of the components that make up reading/writing and I am looking forward to working with our Longfellow Longhorns!
