Ryan Wallace is a loving husband and father of two boys (8 and 4), a teacher with 15 years experience teaching high school English at William E. Tolman High School in Pawtucket, RI, and alumnus of The Catholic University of America, and a graduate student at Mt. Holyoke College.
Ryan did not plan on being a teacher. In fact, he wanted to be anything but. His father, a 40 year educator, would try to sway him into following his footsteps, but Ryan held firm. It was an inspiring professor and the delayed appreciation of a high school English teacher that pulled Ryan out of the “undeclared” abyss.
His undergraduate experience tutoring reading and student teaching in the District of Columbia Public School System helped direct him away from his suburban roots to urban education. It is in that arena where Ryan has found his home as an educator.
