Meet the Principal

Meet Yeny Rosales, Principal  

Dear Ryan Families,

It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new interim principal of Ryan STEAM Academy.  My name is Yeny Rosales and I am honored to have the opportunity to work at a school with such persevering  students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community.  I feel very fortunate to be part of this school and to work with all of our  students and families during this school year. 

I have been working in Alum Rock for more than 15 years.  I had the pleasure to serve as a teacher for 13 years, at Pala, Mathson, Adelante and Ocala, and as an assistant principal for the past 2 years. I  served as assistant principal at both Fischer and Sheppard Middle Schools. I am excited to be able to use my knowledge of middle school expectations to create an alignment between elementary and the middle school transition.  The past 15 years have also given me the opportunity to develop ongoing relationships with community based organizations, community resources and services, and parents. 

I am looking forward to sharing talent shows, crazy hair days, band concerts, design challenges, art showcases, and many other events with Ryan’s staff and families. I am excited to join you in the commitment to developing students' 21st century skills through STEAM, the engineering design process, and exploration. I believe relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students. I hope to meet each one of you individually to learn more about the wonderful things that are happening at Ryan. 

In service, 

Yeny Rosales
