Ryan has spent almost 20 years a practicing K-12 educator in Yukon’s public schools. Ryan was drawn to the EdD program as it gave him an opportunity to critically analyze his practice as a K-12 educator. He researched the history of the governance of Yukon’s public schools and identified significant parallels to Yukon’s constitutional development as a territory. He is currently the Assistant Deputy Minister of Schools and Student Services with Yukon’s Department of Education and provides oversight and supervision of 30 public schools and programs.
