Our teachers are amazing, which is why we share the story of a school’s Teacher of the Year every week ... please help us celebrate 2021 Mill Creek Middle School Teacher of the Year Ryan Brumbelow!
Mill Creek Middle School Teacher of the Year Ryan Brumbelow is “that” teacher, according to his colleagues, who makes connecting with his students look easy.
The 14-year teacher excels at the challenging craft of making science lessons interest even the most disinterested middle schoolers, and in engaging them in one of the many extra-curricular activities he helps lead like the Lego League robotics team, the Technology Club and the 4-H Club.
“He develops positive and meaningful relationships with students,” his Principal shared. “He succeeds in building these relationships through his ability to make content meaningful and relevant to real life experiences. He also demonstrates that he genuinely cares for students and their well-being, which is evident in the time he spends outside of class helping to sponsor clubs.”
Mr. Brumbelow also is a leader among his peers, representing them on the School Council, serving as the school’s Digital Learning leader and CCSD Discovery Education STEM initiative teacher, and mentoring and supporting colleagues. “He is much more than a teacher,” one colleague shared, “he is a magician, and he is my friend.”
In his own words: “Education does not end in the classroom. Through clubs and competitive teams, students can use the knowledge they have gained and further that knowledge in various ways.”
