Each week Daniel has a conversation with a leadership expert and invites you to the table. Turn your commute (or chores) into professional development and then go make a ruckus!

Better Leaders Better Schools guest Ryan Bruick has been teaching for 12 years and instructional coaching for 4.  He taught 3 years at Wheaton Warrenville South High School in Chicago's west suburbs where he learned to teach physics using Modeling methods.  For the past nine years Ryan has taught at Noblesville High School in a northern suburb of Indianapolis.  He currently use Modeling methods to teach three sections of Chemistry I Honors and am an instructional coach when he does not teach.  This is his second year practicing standards-based grading with his students, and his first year coaching other teachers in SBG.  Ryan coaches distance runners and learners, and for two years each, long/triple jumpers and pole vaulters.

Ryan’s experiences in chemical research and development influence the way he approaches teaching and coaching.  His first job out of college was serving at an Outback Steakhouse.  His second was a "Flavor Technician" in the Sweets division for an international flavor-engineering company where he worked with Flavorists to develop artificial flavors for companies like Yoplait, Coca-Cola, and Diageo.  He left that job for his first teaching job.

Later in his career, he worked as a research assistant to brother in Golden, CO.  There he worked largely on developing solutions for companies to turn waste into profit while reducing environmental impact.  He got to see and do so much cool stuff in that job, but most importantly his immersion in the industry gave him a better perspective as to what skills his students really need to compete. 

Ryan loves teaching, loves coaching, and loves science.
