Hello FMS! My name is Ryan Drake and I am an Assistant Principal at our school. I am very excited to be working with you all. After college, I came to work for D8 at Carson Middle as an ELA teacher. After 7 years of teaching kids and helping learn to love to read and write, I wanted to experience more of helping the entire school system. I became the Dean at Carson and served in that role for one year before becoming our Assistant Principal here. Personally, I love to be in the outdoors hunting and fishing. I enjoy lakes, rivers, and mountains, so Colorado will always be a part of me. I have been married for 10 years and we have an amazing family with 5 crazy kids. We love to play family games and watch movies. I love helping people and being a part of children’s lives and plan to continue for many, many years to come.
I am a Michigan native and a huge Michigan State fan! Go Green! After graduating from MSU, my job search brought me to the beautiful state of Colorado where I completed my Masters in Educational Leadership. I have been fortunate enough to have spent my 12 years in education serving the community of Fountain as Physical Education teacher at Jordahl Elementary, Dean of Students at Fountain Middle School, and now as an Assistant Principal at Fountain Middle School.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and getting outdoors to hike and go snowboarding.
I look forward to continuing my work within the Fountain community and supporting our families and students with their educational careers.
I truly enjoy being part of the Fountain Middle School community- I believe we have the best students and staff! This is my fourth year as an Assistant Principal and 13th year in education. Outside of school, I enjoy traveling with my family and golfing. My drive to serve in the position of Assistant Principal is because I believe education creates opportunities and I want to be part of the solution.
