My name is Ryan Cousins. I teach 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade computers, Intro to Computer Science, Design & Modeling, and Quest at NEMS, and Computer Science at the high school. In addition, I am the technical director for Comstock Community Auditorium. This will be my third year teaching, and I was a mathematics intervention paraprofessional for six years before that. I look forward each year to creating a safe and enjoyable classroom environment for every student, and helping them learn new skills that will serve them as they move forward in school and in life. In addition to teaching, I am an audio engineer and run sound at many events in West Michigan. I am also a drummer and have played with several local bands over the years, and coached and written for area drumlines. I enjoy spending time with my family, learning and working with anything hi-tech, and making a positive difference in my students' lives.
