Teachers

2019 Regional Teacher of the Year

Ryan Healy

Ryan Healy

For Ryan Healy, “love” is a verb. As the character development teacher Ridgeline Middle School in Yelm Community Schools, he teaches students how to act and behave toward others, rather than what not to do. And his principal, Craig Curry, is effusive in his praise: “In my 18 years as an educator, I have never worked with a teacher who has more positive impact on kids than Ryan Healy.”

Because of his approach to teaching and his clear vision for how he would serve the state as a representative of our region, Capital Region Educational Service District 113 named Ryan Healy as our 2019 Regional Teacher of the Year. We’re proud of the work he’s doing and look forward to sharing his influence across our state.

About the Teacher of the Year Program

Since 1963, the Washington State Teacher of the Year program has selected one outstanding educator annually to serve as the Washington State Teacher of the Year. The Teacher of the Year is selected from a slate of up to 9 regional candidates representing Washington’s nine ESDs, as well as tribal schools.

Anyone can nominate someone for Teacher of the Year. Nominated teachers complete a written application and enter the regional selection process through their ESDs. Each ESD recommends a Regional Teacher of the Year to the state program. Regional Teachers of the Year undergo a rigorous state selection that includes a written application, presentation, and panel interview. The State Teacher of the Year is selected by a committee made up of diverse educators, families, students, and education stakeholders.
