I would like to take the time to introduce myself and welcome you to our school website and my profile page. My name is Ryan Casey and I have the privilege and honor of leading the staff and students of Mountain Valley Middle School. I have been at MVMS for the last 12 years, 2 years as the assistant principal and 10 years as the principal. Before coming to MVMS I was a member of the teaching staff at Mountain Valley High School for 8 years teaching health education.

I have lived in the river valley my entire life. Graduating from Mountain Valley High School in 1991 and the University of Maine at Farmington in 1995. I have a bachelor's degree in School Health Education and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership.

I believe in a shared leadership style and have worked hard to create a collaborative school learning environment. One that provides our staff, students, parents, and our community the opportunity to get involved and make a difference. We all play a role in the learning process and when we work together anything is possible. I truly believe that all students can and will learn if they feel safe and believe in the school that they are attending. Our staff works each and every day to provide authentic learning opportunities while doing our very best to help students see the relevance in what they are being asked to do and learn. MVMS starts each day with a "Sky's the Limit" attitude.

I am married to my wife Jessica, a Special Educator and together we live in Dixfield with our two children Emma 18 and Ethan 15. Both students attend Mountain Valley High School. We enjoy spending time together and watching our kids grow into adults.

I truly love my job and our school. I welcome you to look around and or stop by to see all the wonderful things that are happening each and every day at Mountain Valley Middle School.
