Principal’s Message

PRINCIPAL BRITTANI RYAN

Welcome to George Kelly Elementary School, where all students learn at high levels, every day!

I want to formally introduce myself to the Kelly community and express my excitement to begin this journey as your new Principal! I am new to Kelly, but not to the Tracy community as I graduated from the Tracy Unified School District and am in my eighth year of service. I have the experience of teaching 7th grade Science, AVID and serving as an AVID Site Coordinator. Prior to this position, I served as an Assistant Principal. 

As we start this new school year, I am looking forward to meeting the needs of our Kelly teachers, students and families with my ongoing support and dedication while building lasting relationships. I believe in the maturation of student’s intellectual, physical, emotional, and social well-being so that they may contend with the present and future challenges of life. I want to encourage families to get involved by supporting your child’s teacher as they are committed to the growth and education of all of our children. Furthermore, I am dedicated to a student centered vision of teaching and learning with a focus on strong instructional practices that benefit all students and both support and empower teachers. 

I want to encourage our students to work hard, persevere and stay committed to learning and attending school regularly as attendance directly influences their academic success.

As Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “Intelligence plus character… is the goal of true education.” My goal is to create an environment responsive to the diverse needs of individuals, while valuing and encouraging collaborative partnerships and participation. 

I look forward to a great school year! Please reach out with questions or concerns.

Sincerely, 

Ms. Brittani Ryan
Principal
