Hello! My name is Morgan Ryan. I teach third grade math and science. This will be my fifth year at South Hi Mount Elementary, my first year teaching third grade, and previously taught special education. I moved to Fort Worth 5 years ago from Edwards, Colorado. For those who do not know where that is, it is near Vail Ski Resort up in the Rocky Mountains. In my spare time I love to hike, travel, and spend time with friends and family. My favorite color is purple, and my favorite subject is math!
