Paula Ryan loves teaching fourth and fifth grades so much that she has been doing so here at Holy Spirit School for 30 years. Presently she is teaching 5th grade Religion. Her bachelor’s degree is from Aquinas College with majors in Religion and English, and her master’s degree is from Western Michigan University in Educational Leadership. For the past 30 years she has been a very active member of the Holy Spirit Parish Community. Mrs. Ryan and her husband Tim work on the Haiti Committee and have participated in medical missions in Seguin, Haiti. Since they want the best faith-filled education for their children, they chose Holy Spirit School for their daughters. Kelly now attends Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and Colleen attends Michigan State University. When Mrs. Ryan is not teaching, she enjoys cheering on her daughters at sporting events, camping, and getting together with her family at her parents’ cottage. She lived in Italy and loves everything Italian … the food, art, churches, faith, and the beautiful language. You might even hear her speaking Italian in the school hallways. Ciao!
