May 05, 2015

Ryan HonoredCynthia Ryan, a third grade teacher at Frisco ISD’s Allen Elementary, was recognized by the Frisco RoughRiders Foundation in April as its Teacher of the Month.

The RoughRiders Foundation established the FISD Teacher Recognition program in 2008 to recognize outstanding Frisco school teachers for their dedication and work on behalf of Frisco’s students and general community. One teacher is recognized each month during the RoughRiders season.

Ryan was nominated for the award by a group of parents who cited her dedication, encouragement and passion for working with students. In addition, Ryan’s efforts stretch beyond the boundaries of the classroom, including volunteering in the community with CASA and USO.

Ryan was formally honored during the RoughRiders game on April 25. She was awarded with a check for $500 in her name that will be split between the Frisco Education Foundation and Allen Elementary.

In addition, she received “VIP Treatment” at the Ballpark, including four tickets with Founders Club access (including free parking, food and beverages) as well as a private tour of the ballpark before the game.

Several of Ryan’s Allen families were also on hand to show their support.
