Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Ryan Eggers and I am honored to be serving as an Assistant Principal here at Murray Middle School. Though I am new to the position, I’ve spent the last six years working with our incredible Murray community as an 8th grade teacher. The dedication and collaborative nature of our staff is what I find most rewarding for our students as we’re always finding new, creative means to support their learning.
After completing my undergraduate work at the University of Minnesota Duluth, I began teaching high school social studies at Brooklyn Center Secondary. While working with our Data Analysis Team, I fell in love with numbers and pursued an additional licensure in mathematics to bring a new lens on how to approach problem solving and make math more culturally relevant. In 2013, I joined St. Paul Public Schools as an Algebra 1, Geometry and AVID elective teacher. Being a lifelong learner, I continued to improve upon my craft by receiving my Masters in Leadership Education and Administrative License from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities.
When I am away from school, I’m chasing around my curious toddler, Maddox and spending time with my wife Nakeea. We enjoy traveling, hiking and scouring the cities for the best new cuisines. You could say we’re “foodies” but we only occasionally Instagram our plates.
I believe all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. When these needs are met, students are more willing to share their ideas, take risks and be their true, authentic self.
I cannot wait for the start of our new school year and I look forward to building positive relationships with our students, families, and Murray community. Go Pilots!!
