Greetings SPPS Online School Community, 

I’m excited to serve as the Elementary Assistant Principal with SPPS Online! Over the last five school years in SPPS, I’ve served as a program manager in the Office of Title I Federal programs and in the previous two years as the administrator of Pre-K@Rondo, the district's first Pre-K Hub. Before moving to Saint Paul, I worked as an elementary general and special education teacher and a dean of instruction in Atlanta, Georgia, and Nashville, Tennessee. 

After living across the country for several years, my wife Ashley and I are happy to have started our family here in Minnesota and love calling Saint Paul home with our two daughters.

As an educator, I'm passionate about providing students with the best educational opportunities. I look forward to engaging with and getting to know the SPPS Online School community. I know that together we will provide students and families with unique educational opportunities that meet their individual needs. 

If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me at ryan.fell@spps.org or call/text me at 612-930-7905.

Assistant Principal

Greetings Online School parents and students.  It is my pleasure to serve you for a second school year.  Thanks for the opportunity to work with you and your children.

A little about me:

I have been working for Saint Paul Public Schools for 26 years.  I started working, in the district, as a Latino Consent Decree/EL teacher at Phalen Lake elementary school.  I worked for the SPPS Tech Department for two years. I was the Assistant Principal for EXPO, Paul & Sheila Wellstone, and French Immersion elementary schools.  I was the Principal of the Spanish Immersion in Robbinsdale for a year before returning to Saint Paul Public Schools. I worked with several Area Super Intendents and multiple SPPS departments during the Covid pandemic in Saint Paul.  It is my second year at the SPPS Online School.

I was born in Colombia, South America.  I have 4 siblings.  I have two children.  I came to the US to grow academically and professionally.  I love being from two different cultures.  I visit my family often in Colombia while enjoying my children in the US.

I studied teaching and education back  in Colombia.  I completed my master program in Teaching and Learning in the US.  I also completed my Admin license to become an Assistant Principal/Principal in the US.  I am now finishing a master program in technology and curriculum integration.  Besides teaching and being an administrator, I am a computer programmer, network admin, web master, interpreter, and translator.

It is indeed my pleasure to belong to the SPPS Online School.  I am at your service.

Please, do not hesitate to contact me any time.

 

Sincerely,

 

John Osorio
