Welcome to the Iowa-Grant School District. We take great pride in our students, in our community, and in our commitment to excellence. In partnership with the community, the Iowa-Grant School District will challenge each student to reach his or her full potential in order to compete in a global society.
We are happy to announce that the contract offered to Robyn Ryser for the 2-8 principal position at the Iowa-Grant Elementary School for 2016-17 has been accepted and signed.
Ms. Ryser comes to us with a wealth of experience at the middle and elementary school levels. She has been employed at the Pecatonica School District for the past 22 years. She holds a PreK-8 Elementary Education license along with licenses in Mathematics for grades 1-9 and Computer Science for grades 1-9. She completed her principal licensure requirements in April of 2016 through the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
She has been teaching English/Language Arts to all 6-8 grade students at Pecatonica since 2006 but has taught grades K-5 in summer school for the last fifteen years concentrating on technology courses. She has also taught mathematics and computer programming to middle and high school students for 13 years. She works with other teachers to incorporate technology into their instructional programs and has shared her knowledge by being an adjunct college instructor working with teachers in graduate level courses. In addition, she has been an instructor for the WCATY Academy in Madison which provides instructional programs for gifted and talented students. As a math and English teacher, she has adapted learning for all children and has experience with autism, Asperger’s, learning and cognitive disabilities, as well as children with mental health issues and social, emotional, and developmental issues. Pecatonica is unique in that the District encompasses parts of four counties, so she is well aware of the complications that this can present in contacting the right service agencies and working with community supports to help students.
Ms. Ryser has been a member of the curriculum and professional development committee for over 20 years and has shown herself to be a leader in working with teachers to improve their instructional methodology and skills having designed and facilitated professional development programs at Pecatonica for many years. She has worn a variety of hats in that small rural school district including MAP testing coordinator for the elementary and middle schools, assessment coordinator, curriculum coordinator and middle school team leader. As team leader, it was her responsibility to track assessments and data, facilitate weekly team meetings, and provide professional development when needed.
Her passion for elementary and middle school students and for the education profession is very evident and is unmatched. She understands child and adolescent development and has years of hands-on experience with curriculum at these grades. She is a tireless learner for herself and for the benefit of her students.
Her interests include supporting the drama club and helping with the drama and musical productions. She has also worked with and supported student government in the middle school. She is a native of Mineral Point and a busy mother of three. Ms. Ryser has lived in this area for her entire life and has relatives living in Linden.
As the unanimous choice of the interview committee, the administration and the entire school board are pleased to welcome such a qualified educator and leader to the Iowa-Grant family. We have no doubt that she will be a true asset to the IGEMS building.
