Mr. Ryan Haes

Welcome to Southland College Prep High School! I am excited to be guiding the Freshman and Sophomore class as they discover and explore the science curriculum at Southland. In my undergraduate at Missouri State University, I earned a Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology with a minor in Organic Chemistry. Through my time there, I spent many hours training under 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 I love and have been now been married to for 3 years. During my time in Chicago, I have had the pleasure of working with Avexis who are revolutionizing medicine with gene-therapy treatments, 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 go plus ultra.
