Name:Ryan Kix
    Subject: Physical Education K-6


    My name is Ryan Kix and I will be your Physical Education teacher this year at school. I graduated from Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall MN in 2014, With a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education/ DAPE Teaching with a minor in coaching. After that I have been teaching in schools around the area. In 2016 my wife and I bought a house in Milroy and then got married June of 2017. In the above picture is our family of three (my wife jasmine, my son Ryker and myself), we also have two dogs and there names are layla and jersey. We will soon be a family of six as my wife is expecting a baby girl in October. I like spending time with my family and friends, going hunting, sports and traveling. All of these things are really important to me and I have fun doing all of them. 

    As for my teaching goes my primary goal as a teacher is to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge that will allow them to see the value of a healthy lifestyle and the benefit of physical activity for the duration of their life. Through the use of team building and cooperative games, I seek to make physical education simple and fun, while instilling values such as sportsmanship, patience, and determination in all my students. Along with teaching I have been coaching junior high boys’ basketball since 2010, someday hoping to coach at the high school level. My goal in coaching is being able to teach skills that they can use on and off the court. I also love showing them all the aspects of the game of basketball.

    With that said, my biggest goal in my life is to become a teacher/coach that students cannot wait to come to my class or practice. I also want to be available for my students at any given moment. I want to be that teacher who inspires students, and a teacher whom students look up to and come back to for anything.
