Mr. Ryan McCluskey


To share a little about myself, I grew up in Moberly, MO. A town about 30 minutes north of the University of Missouri. Because of this I have been an avid Tigers fan my whole life. After graduating high school I took a football and academic scholarship to attend Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, MO. This is where I met my wife and earned my undergraduate degree. After college my wife and I both found jobs back in Moberly as teachers at the high school. We lived there 6 years prior to taking the opportunity to move to Smithville. We moved to Smithville because we thought it would be a great place to raise our family. We have 2 boys. A 8 year old named Connor and a 4 year old named Martin. Outside of school my family and I love to cook, travel, and watch sports.

Teaching Experience:

This is my 13th year of teaching experience. I have a bachelors degree in Unified Science Education from MSSU and a Masters of Education in Educational Leadership from FHSU.I have always had a love for science and a love for teaching. I have spent all 12 years of my teaching experience teaching chemistry and physical science.  I am very excited about each of the these classes and I am excited to see students gain an interest in science as the year goes on. I also serve Smithville School District as a varsity football coach and offensive coordinator.
