Christina Ryan

BA Music, EdM Early Childhood Education, Certified Music Together Teacher

Christina is delighted to be leading music classes again at WUNS this year! She brings experiences as a musician, educator, and parent. She taught kindergarten for 12 years, is a certified Music Together teacher, has taught flute lessons, and has played in and directed a variety of ensembles. She continues to play flute professionally, but she has always enjoyed the special energy that lights up when she shares music and movement with young children, who have an innate desire to make playful noise and wiggle their bodies. She is very excited to share that joy with all the bears at WUNS…including her own children.

She has been married to her high school sweetheart, Stephen, for 20 years, and has two children: Brendon, an alumnus of WUNS, and Isabelle, who will be a Big Bear/Sun Bear during the 2022 – 2023 school year. When she’s not trying to keep up with her littles, she enjoys volunteering with her church, neighborhood groups, and—of course!—at WUNS. She also loves to read, play flute and piano, do anything artsy and crafty, and go out to eat at restaurants.
