Hello! My name is Yesenia McCleskey and I have the honor of serving as Assistant Principal at W.S. Ryan Elementary. This will be the beginning of my eleventh year in education. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts from the University of Texas at Austin with a major in Spanish and minor in sociology. In addition, I hold a Masters in Teaching and Principal Certification from Texas Woman’s University.
I have taught third and fourth grades at Borman and Ginnings Elementary. Before coming to Ryan I was the ESL/Curriculum Coach at Ginnings. For the last three years I have held the position of Reading Coach at W.S. Ryan and feel extremely blessed to start my journey as your new AP.
Over the years I have served on committees in the district such as ELA UBD writing, 4/5 SALSA trainer and 3-5 Report card committees. I have a passion for curriculum and instruction and look forward to supporting our staff, students and families this year.
My husband and I are both DHS graduates and love serving our community. This year our oldest daughter Lauren will begin her sophomore year at DHS. Our son Lucas will start his freshman year in Plano and the youngest here at Ryan. We are very excited to see what 2016-2017 has in store for us.
