ACADEMIC DIRECTOR

Ryn Blecke MS

Ryn comes to Solstice East with twenty years of experience as a teacher and academic leader in therapeutic, public, and independent schools across the country. She received her B.A. in Psychology from Georgetown University and her M.S. in Educational Psychology from the University of Tennessee. Her passion for creating engaging, student-centered learning environments led to her role as the founding Academic Dean and Dean of Faculty at The Bay School of San Francisco, an innovative, college preparatory school in California. The core of her work as an educator has always been about empowering students and supporting them in becoming their best selves. This philosophy drew her to Solstice East and she is thrilled to be a part of this community.
