Hello, parents and students! My name is Ryan Wehr and I’m a special education teacher at Brandywine Heights High School. Welcome to my web site! The 2016-2017 school year is my seventh year in the special education department at BHHS. I spend a large portion of my day supporting students individually and in small groups in co-taught classes to assist them in achieving success in their studies. Additionally, I am highly-qualified in both secondary mathematics and secondary English and have taught Math 11, Math 12, Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Read 180, English 11, and English 12 during my time at Brandywine Heights. I am teaching Read 180 and Algebra I this school year. I am also co-teaching English 10, Algebra II, and Geometry.
I am a 2003 graduate of Parkland High School. I went on to achieve my Bachelor’s Degree in journalism from Penn State University. I continued my education at Lehigh University in Bethlehem where I received my Master’s Degree in Special Education. While at Lehigh, I worked as a Research Intern at Community Choices, a community-based work program for adults with cognitive and physical disabilities. I also spent a year as a Teacher Associate at Lehigh’s Centennial School, which serves special education students with emotional disturbance and/or Autism.
Sports are a huge part of how I spend my time outside of school. This year is my fourth season as the head varsity coach of the Brandywine Heights boys’ basketball team. I previously coached high school basketball for 6 seasons at both Parkland High School and Emmaus High School. I previously served as the co-head coach of the BHHS varsity golf team for 3 seasons as well. I am also a fan of all Philadelphia sports teams, an avid Penn State football fan, and enjoy rooting on both the Nittany Lions and North Carolina Tar Heels during the college basketball season.
