Mr. Ryan Burgess
Hello and welcome to Mr. Burgess' Classroom Page!
Name: Ryan Burgess
School: Long Branch Middle School
Position: 6th Grade Science Teacher / PLTW Automation & Robotics Teacher (6th, 7th, and 8th Grade)
This is my third year teaching in the Long Branch School District after beginning my educational career for three years in Keansburg, NJ. I grew up in the Long Branch area, so it brings me great joy to be back here serving our community. I was a graduate of The Marine Academy of Science & Technology on Sandy Hook, after which I went to Colorado State University to pursue a degree in Health & Exercise Science, where I also played football. After graduating from college, I spent almost fifteen years working as a Strength and Conditioning Coach around the country, applying my knowledge of science in helping athletes perform at their peak. During this time I also obtained a Master's Degree in Sport Psychology from Pennsylvania Western University.
In the summer of 2017, I relocated back home so my son and I could be closer to family. I also made the choice at that time to change careers and become a teacher, completing the Alternate Route Teacher Certification Program through Monmouth University. I absolutely love having the opportunity to open up young minds to the possibilities science has to offer, so I look forward to helping your child ignite their spark of curiosity!
