Teaching History

Spring Forest Middle School, 2010-Present

 

In his own words . . .

“I love the challenge of teaching. Whether in the classroom teaching science as I did for a number of years, or in the gym teaching Athletics, teachers are in the unique position to make a difference in kids’ lives on a daily basis. In sports, the variety of life lessons we are able to teach our athletes is amazing and what inspires me every day.”

“Spring Forest is a special place and I am blessed to be a part of this amazing school. I remember my middle school coaches being incredibly influential when I came through Spring Forest Middle myself, and many of the lessons they taught me I still carry to this day. I’m also thankful to have worked alongside one of my former coaches before he retired! To see, as an adult, how and why he so positively impacted me as a middle schooler was transformative.”

In the words of others . . .

“I think his coaches sum it up best: Integrity and empathy are the two words that describe Ryan Harvey. If it is not the right thing, and it does not serve all parties involved, we aren’t going to do it. Ryan cares for everyone!”

Tracey Reap, Spring Forest Middle Assistant Principal

“As remarkable as Coach Harvey is as a teacher, he is even more astonishing as a person. He is a father, a husband, a coach, a friend, and yet he still finds time to serve his community and congregation at Memorial Drive United Methodist Church.”

Raymorris Barnes, Spring Forest Middle Principal

Spring Forest MS festival

 

More than 700 parents and students attended the annual PTA-hosted Multicultural Festival held Oct. 25 at Spring Forest Middle School. Flags from the homelands and birthplaces of 900 or more Spring Forest Middle students were hung during festival days throughout the campus, located at 14240 Memorial Drive.   

Spring Forest Middle is proud to be recognized as the most diverse secondary schools in Spring Branch ISD, and students, families and festival organizers were proud to show off the school’s variety of cultures.  The festival included food and special treats from the tables of 28 countries hosted by representative families and staff, henna hand painting and music provided by the Spring Forest Middle band and orchestra, as well as a DJ who treated students to popular and regional music from across the world.

Spring Forest MS festival

 

Students had a different cultural experience at every country’s table set up at the festival.  When they visited Canada, for example, they were treated to pancakes and maple syrup while learning about hockey. They sampled chicken feet while learning about China. They sang songs, danced and feasted when they visited the Mexico table. 

Students also took passports around the festival site and received a “stamp” when they filled in a correct answer about a country.  Students who submitted a completed passport also received a Free Dress Day pass to use in lieu of the traditional student uniform.

The local Spring Forest Middle community generously supported the Multicultural Festival by donating food, desserts and services.

 

Families and mentors are a critical part of helping students make connections between what is learned at school and what they experience outside campus walls. We welcome and encourage parents, families, and mentors to partner with us!

The new Empowered & Equipped! site features resources to support conversations and activities at home, and in the community, with monthly lessons aligned to SBISD instruction. These lessons focus on the critical areas of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)and building awareness of various career pathways as part of the Spring Branch T-2-4 Goal.
