Mr. Ryan Burgess
Hello and welcome to my "online" classroom! This is my first year teaching in the Long Branch School District, having spent the past three in Keansburg, NJ. I grew up in the Long Branch area, so I'm thrilled to back here to serve this 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 college I spent almost fifteen years working as a Strength and Conditioning Coach around the country, applying my knowledge of science into helping athletes perform at their peak. In the summer of 2017 I relocated back home so my son could grow up closer to his extended family and I made the choice to change careers and become a teacher, completing the Alternate Route Teacher Certification Program through Monmouth University. It brings me great joy to open up young minds to all of the possibilites science has to offer, so I look forward to helping your child ignite the spark of curiosity!
