Welcome

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 2019-2020 school year is my tenth 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, Pre-algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Read 180, English 11, and English 12 during my time at Brandywine Heights.  This year, I am co-teaching multiple sections of English 11, English 9, Algebra II, and Geometry.  I am also overseeing an online class in Digital Citizenship through our Virtual Academy platform.

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 seventh 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.
