Mr. Ryan Thiele
I am excited to begin my 14th year as a middle school art teacher by working at Brambleton Middle! I grew up in rural Illinois and graduated with a BFA in painting from the University of Illinois. From there, I studied drawing, painting, and animation in Los Angeles. After all of my art studies, I chose to use my knowledge of art to teach students and become the art teacher I wished I had growing up! I previously taught art at Sterling Middle School for 13 years, where I taught art beside my wife for the past 11 years. My wife, Mrs. Thiele, and I are thrilled and lucky to continue working together as art teachers at Brambleton Middle! We have one three year old daughter, Savannah and one dog named Finnegan. In my spare time I like to draw, write, play the piano, watch movies, read, and swim.
