Mr. Ryan Droese

Hello All! This is my fourth year at HJ and my third year teaching science in 7th grade. I am a West Craven High School graduate and a product of Craven County Schools. After graduating from high school I went to East Carolina University to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice with a concentration in Biology. Prior to becoming a teacher I was a police officer in Morehead City and worked at Craven Correctional Institute. I have been married to my beautiful wife since 2011 and together we have a daughter named Helena and another daughter on the way December, 2021. I am happy to be a part of the H. J. MacDonald Middle School faculty and look forward to teaching science again this year!!!
