I’m Ryan Mitchell. I was named the 2022 Burroughs Wellcome Fund Western Region Teacher of the Year and the 2021 Henderson County Teacher of the Year.
I currently teach 2nd grade at Mills River Elementary School in Mills River, NC. Over the course of my career I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade. This variety of perspectives has given a great view of content across elementary schools. I have served in various school leadership roles and taught professional development across the district. I am currently serving as a beginning teacher coach. I have been the keynote speaker for 3 events for new teachers and prospective teaches.
I am passionate about helping beginning teachers with the support they need. I am also very passionate about teaching the whole child not just the academic child through Social and Emotional Learning.
I am a proud husband of a North Carolina Educator and have two amazing daughters.
