Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- If you ask Judy Ryan's 4th and 5th grade Montessori students at Pontiac Elementary School what makes her special, they'll tell you it's because she has a great sense of humor and knows each of their personalities.
For more than 27 years, Ryan has been an educator. In the last 6 months, she's expanded her scope and is now teaching upper Montessori students. Ryan has had the privilege of teaching all across the country.
Her dedication and commitment to making sure each of her students achieves their best is why she's being recognized as this week's News19 Teacher of the Week.
