About Ryan Sheehy:

Ryan was raised in Southern California where his diverse educational experiences all started. He attended public school, private school, and was homeschooled. He has seen and been part of all types of education systems, which gives him a different perspective. Ryan is a passionate educator that has made it his mission to help everyone live up to their potential and unleash their power to change the life of a child.

He also has an immense dedication for kids and for making sure all educators understand the power they have in a child’s life. Ryan was a physical education teacher for ten years before taking the leap from teacher to administrator. After serving two years as a high school vice-principal, Ryan is now the lead learner/principal of an elementary school in Concord, California. Ryan prides himself as being someone who can build a strong school culture and that is exactly what has happened at the schools where he has served as an administrator.  

Ryan works in the community where he lives, which allows him to build many relationships that foster a great learning environment for staff, students and families. Ryan also travels and speaks about creative educational practices and how we all have the power to Be the One for Kids. Ryan also speaks about Incorporating Technology, Being an Educator In Action, Creating a School Where No One Wants To Leave, and many other topics. He moderates a variety of Twitter chats and is very active on social media. 

Ryan’s wife, Barbara, and four children, Robert, Joshua, Julianna, and Zachary, are the light of his world. Ryan and his family reside in Concord, California.

 

Go Community!

Better Leaders Better Schools

Better Leaders Better Schools

This community is one of my favorite one-stop-shop tools to engage with other amazing school leaders. I use this online resource to gain insight, gather resources, and develop my leadership capacity.

The #1 Leadership Online community is generous and authentic, an antidote to the clutter and noise that other social media sites have become.

What makes this community different is that it is:

  • An investment, not free
  • A private community with the same goal
  • A conversation, not a variety of self-promoting presentations
  • Evergreen, not ephemeral
  • Focused on serving school leaders, not advertisers, companies, or investors

I highly recommend using Go! Community to enhance your leadership skills!
