Ms. Kecia Ryan

After graduating from the University of Alabama with a major in English and a Minor in Spanish, I began my teaching career in Orlando, Florida.

I worked there for the Orange County Public School system as a middle school English teacher for five years. From Orlando, I moved to Richmond and have remained here for the bulk of my career. During my tenure, I have taught middle school English to students at Thompson and Lucille Brown.

Additionally, I have worked summer school and an extended day at George Mason, JEB Stuart, Patrick Henry, South Hampton, Linwood Holton, Mosby (MLK), and Boushall. In 2007, I received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from VCU. I came to J.L Francis six years ago as the Assistant Principal and am now entering my third year as the Principal.

I approach everyday seeing in all of our students the potential others saw in me.
