Mrs. Diane Ryan
Mrs. Ryan has been a first grade teacher at St. Luke since the fall of 2006. Her interest in teaching began when her own son was in first grade. She especially loved helping him learn to read. After Mrs. Ryan graduated from Roosevelt University, she was a special education aide for grades one through five at an elementary school in Wheaton, IL. Mrs. Ryan has been married to her husband, John, for over 30 years and she has a son, John, and a daughter, Emily. Both of her children have very different learning styles, which continues to challenge her to present lessons in as many different ways as possible so all students are successful. Mrs. Ryan also enjoys reading, walking, scrap booking, playing games with her family. She enjoyed travelling with her husband on a recent trip to Hawaii with Mr. and Mrs. Martin.
