My name is Ryan Aultman and this is my first year teaching 5th grade at Sandy Grade School. I truly believe that it is a privilege to serve the students in the Sandy community! I am excited to build a positive classroom community that promotes rigorous studies in an environment where students enjoy coming to school every day. I am also enthusiastic about joining an amazing staff that shares a passion for developing a community of learners.
Prior to teaching, I worked in the insurance and banking industries after graduating from Portland State University with a Bachelor of Science in Advertising and Marketing. At the urging of my wife and family, I decided to go back to school and obtain a Master of Arts in Teaching from Concordia University. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my wife Francesca who is a 5th grade teacher in the David Douglas School District. In addition, I enjoy reading, floating on a river, and playing and watching sports.
