In the Classroom

Ryan and Mrs. Prest in 2007

It was Ryan’s 1st grade teacher Mrs. Prest who first taught him about kids in other parts of the world living without access to clean water.  Mrs. Prest is one of so many teachers out there that lead and encourage youth to make their mark on the world. Thank you, to ALL of you who continue to go above and beyond. You truly make a difference! With support, encouragement and helpful resources, Ryan proved that young people can make a big impact.  Now it’s your turn!

We can help inspire your students to think beyond what they thought was possible of themselves.

NEW FOR TEACHERS:  RWF In The Classroom :  a 4-page document detailing the RWF background, books about water, mentor texts to get you started, the School Challenge, cool classroom ideas, and how your school/class can video chat with Ryan!

NEW: ANIMATED VIDEOS. We’re developing a series of animated videos. These are designed to introduce the story of Ryan’s Well and various concepts to kids in a fun and imaginative way. Feel free to use these in your classrooms!
