Primary 4 Assistant Guide
Hello Athena families,

I am excited to begin my fifth year at Athena and my fourth year as an Assistant Guide in Primary 4. This will be my 12th year working with preschool-aged children and I am filled with gratitude to exist in such an incredible community.

I grew up in San Antonio, where I attended Alamo Community College. Though I initially majored in Accounting, I was hired at a preschool where I fell in love with education. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2016.

Making an impact on children makes my heart happy. I enjoy Maria Montessori’s method and am jazzed to continue to learn in a hands-on methodology. I couldn’t be more grateful for new amazing lead guide, Ms. Lisa. The environment will be filled with so much love!

In my free time I enjoy creating greeting cards, painting, gardening, yoga, reading, and spending time in nature. Oh, and I really miss watching basketball! I love living in Austin and plan to be here for decades.

I look forward to working with your children and learning and growing as their Guide this school year.

With love,

Ryann Flanagan

“Athena is Montessori with flexibility. What a perfect combination of Montessori learning and respect with fun. As a working parent I find the after care options and extracurricular programs to be priceless!”
