Dear Findlay Elementary Families,

It is with much excitement that I welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. My name is Rebecca Ryan and I will be your new principal at Findlay Elementary School. Go Falcons!

Before joining the Findlay team, I taught math at White County High School for twelve years and have a total of fourteen years of experience in education. My philosophy has remained steadfast that all students deserve a rigorous and engaging educational experience. I believe that great schools are the result of great teachers and I know that Findlay Elementary has some of the best! They have been working hard this summer preparing to make your child’s experience this year the best it can be.

As a parent myself, I know the importance each of you play in developing your child’s love of education. I encourage you to be an active participant at our school. From Open House and STEM Night to basketball games and PTO, the door is always open.

I would encourage you to stay informed by visiting our website at and the White County Board of Education website at
