Mr. Ryan Miller

Third Grade Teacher 

Hello! Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Ryan Miller, and I am a third grade teacher at Prairie Trail Elementary. This will be my eighth year teaching, all of which have been at Prairie Trail. I graduated from Iowa State University in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, with an emphasis in social studies. I also received my Master's of Education degree from Viterbo University in 2015.


Prairie Trail is a great school where we strive to make a years growth for every student. In my classroom, I put an emphasis on having a safe classroom community. I also utilize 21st century skills, including the use of a variety of technology. I have high expectations for each student and I look forward to working with each student to meet those expectations as well as meeting their own goals that they will set. 


In my free time, I love hanging out with my family. My wife's name is Kim and she is an Ankeny alumna. We have two daughters, Samantha and Reagan. Samantha turned five in April Reagan turned three in April. We have had a busy and fun summer together! I enjoy all kinds of sports and I'm pretty passionate about the Cyclones and Cubs. 


I hope everyone has a great rest of the summer and I look forward to meeting you in just a couple weeks! I'm excited to get this school year going! It is going to be a great year!
