Mr. Ryan Haes

Welcome to Southland College Prep High School! Like this year’s freshman, this will also be my first year at Southland. In fact, this will even be my first year as a teacher. In my undergraduate at Missouri State University, I earned a Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology with a minor in Chemistry. Through my time there, I spent many hours assisting my professors in their research and studying the human body down to the microscopic level. Although I had serious considerations to attend medical school, I decided to move to Chicago and be with the woman who is now my wife. During my time in Chicago, I have had the pleasure of working with Avexis who are creating revolutionizing medicine with gene-therapy, and Quest Diagnostics who provide medical testing services across the nation. After two years, I realized I wanted to serve the community with my skills and knowledge as a teacher instead. Consequently, I spent time observing other teachers, working as a substitute teacher before the COVID19 pandemic started, and starting a two year program at Domincan University to earn a Master of Education degree in Teaching for Secondary Biology and Chemistry and Middle School Science. As a Biology and Chemistry teacher, I plan to bring my excitement for knowledge and curiosity of the natural world to the classroom. I believe students are capable of learning beyond their expectations and I am looking forward to helping them achieve this.
