Hello! My name is Oksana Ryan and this is my second year teaching 1st grade here at GFCS. I graduated with honors from Sacramento State University majoring in Child Development and minoring in Psychology. Before starting at GFCS, I was a substitute teacher for over a year and through that experience I was able to learn many tools to help me grow as a teacher. I have been working with children for the last 10 years in various forms. Teaching the next generation not only academics, but also helping with life skills as well as character development has always been a passion of mine. I am very grateful to be able to teach at a Christian school where I can share my faith in God as well as model His love. Developing relationships with my students as well as their families is a joy and I am looking forward to meeting you!
