Mrs. Colleen Ryan

Colleen Ryan has been at EXPO Elementary School for 9 years and teaching for over 20 with nearly all of the time with the Saint Paul Public Schools.  Colleen has an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Special Education.

When she is not teaching, Colleen is the mother of four amazing children. They do lots of fun things together including watching and playing all types of sports. They can be seen runnning, playing baseball/hockey, and staying active whenever they can. Mrs. Ryan's favorite thing to do outside of teaching is reading a good book. She can be found reading anything and everything!
