Ryan, Michael

Hello My Name Is...

Michael Ryan

  I graduated from William Paterson University in 1999 with a BA in Exercise & Movement Science/Heath Education and a Certification in Drivers Education. While attending WPU I also participated on the collegiate Football level for five years. In 2007 I earned a MA in Education from Gratz College. The past seven years I’ve been a Certified State of New Jersey 6 Hours Behind-The-Wheel Driving Instructor.

Here at Abraham Clark High School I’m very fortunate to be currently teaching Physical & Drivers Education. I serve as the Varsity Football Teams Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator/Linebacker Coach. I’m also the Winter and Spring Track & Field Throwing Coach.

As a Physical Education Teacher the “Focus” is on promoting physical activity and awareness in a wide variety of ways, to meet the various levels of all students. A Lifetime of Good Health can be met through many different avenues from a physical stand point, despite where you are now but more importantly where you want to be.

As an Athletic Coach the “Focus” is on instilling “The Big 3” – 1. Be the Best Student You Can Be 2. Be the Person You Can Be 3. Be the Best Athlete You Can Be… If #1 & #2 can be “Accomplished” then #3 will fall into place naturally.
