Ryan J. Staehr
8th Grader at Aurora Middle School
Ryan is an 8th Grader at Aurora Middle School. He is a member of the basketball, football and track teams. He is also a member of the school choir and CABS, which is the school's Student Council. In his free time, he likes to play video games, play sports, ride bikes, watch T.V., and swim. Ryan is described by his teachers as a conscientious, respectful, driven student and a leader. This is clearly evident in the classroom. He enjoys working in groups, does not settle for "just good enough", is polite and caring to his fellow students, but his teachers as well by greeting them at the classroom door. His talents in the classroom translate to on the field and court. He leads by example which makes a teacher/coach of nine years describe him as a student athlete socially mature beyond his years.
