Jason Ryan

I’m going into my 9th year of teaching high-school English and 5th year of serving on the executive board of the Rhode Island Writing Project. My resume goes back over 15 years and includes poetry workshops, ELL education and environmental education, all in service of the youth of Rhode Island. On a recent trip to Alabama, I became deeply interested in the use of Kingian Nonviolence and hope to bring these concepts back to my school and Writing Project. I’m passionate about writing and social justice, and believe that one cannot exist without the other.
