PHS’s Ryan receives teacher appreciation award from RF student

For teacher of anything, there’s no better feeling to know how much you’ve impacted a student’s life outside the classroom.

“Hearing from or getting visits from former students means the world to me,” Prescott High School Teacher Jeff Ryan said.   “You always hope to have a positive impact on the lives of young people.  It's what makes being a teacher worthwhile.” 

Ryan found this out when he was given an award at halftime of a River Falls’ High School girls’ basketball game back on Jan. 20. He was chosen as the teacher who made a difference in the life of Stephanie Fleming, who was a student of Ryan’s in his Civics and World Geography during the 2013-2014 school year.

Read the rest of the story in this week's print edition of the Prescott Journal on newsstands and in town this afternoon.
