Rebecca Ryan


Dear Findlay Elementary Families,

It is with much excitement that I welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year.  My name is Rebecca Ryan and I am the principal at Findlay Elementary School.  Go Falcons!

Before joining the Findlay team, I taught math at White County High School for twelve years and have a total of twenty years of experience in education.  My philosophy has remained steadfast that all students deserve a rigorous and engaging educational experience.  I believe that great schools are the result of great teachers and Findlay Elementary has some of the best! They have been working hard preparing to make your child’s experience this year the best it can be.

As a parent myself, I know the importance each of you play in developing your child’s love of education.  I encourage you to be an active participant at our school.  From Open House and STEM Night to basketball games and PTO, the door is always open.

I would encourage you to stay informed by visiting our website and the White County Board of Education website at
