Warriors You Should Know – Adrienne Ryba

Another new face that you may have seen around the building this year is Adrienne Ryba. Adrienne is a new teacher here at WV, but brings with her 3 years of experience from a previous district. If you have not seen Adrienne around this year, it is probably because you haven’t been to the gym and I am not talking about Lifetime or Planet Fitness.
