Welcome to 4th Grade!

Hello, my name is Mary Ryan. This is my eighth year at St. Gerard Majella, and my sixth year teaching fourth grade. I taught primary computer for two years before moving to fourth grade. Prior to coming to SGM, I taught third grade at a private Catholic school for eight years. I also worked as a preschool director and teacher for twelve years.

I hold Missouri teaching certification in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I am also certified as a Religion teacher through the Archdiocese of St. Louis Paul VI Institute.

Currently I teach science and math to all of the fourth graders. In addition, I teach reading, religion, and spelling to the students in 4B. I love to experience the excitement and enthusiasm of the students as they learn and discover, and grow in their abilities.

My hobbies include reading, traveling, and enjoying nature.  My husband and I are the parents of four sons. We are also the proud grandparents of a seven-year- old grandson.


Our class mission is to use our talents to grow closer to God, and learn more about our selves and our world. We pray, we study, we play, and we strive to be a faith-filled and loving community. We are the hands of Christ for others.
