Mr. Ryan Birkemeier
I'm new to SPPS and I'm working to complete my licensure in elementary education through the St. Paul Urban Teacher Residency (SUTR) program with the University of St. Thomas. In my previous career, I worked for seven years as an environmental scientist focused on protecting natural resources in the Midwest. My work allowed me to travel throughout the United States and I learned that my favorite part was environmental education with youth and adults. So... I decided to become an educator!
Outside of work, I enjoy biking, hiking, climbing, paddling and camping. If the activity involves being outside, I probably enjoy it!
I look forward to working with and learning from your students this year!
