Bruneau-Grandview Staff

In a small district like ours, faculty and staff members wear many hats. You’ll find our district-level administrators taking on roles with students within our schools and our teachers fulfilling leadership responsibilities at the district level. We are all involved in the education of our students, which top-down, bottom-up approach is mutually beneficial to all.

Please get to know our district employees as well as our school staff. If you have a concern or question, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are here to serve you.

Biography

About Ryan Cantrell

I was born in Boise, Idaho, to my mother Carmen (now deceased) and father Terry. I was raised in Nampa, Idaho, by my parents, who were both public high school teachers. I attended Nampa public school through 9th grade at Centennial Elementary and West Jr. High. As a sophomore in high school, I transferred to Nampa Christian to complete my high school education.   

Upon graduating Nampa Christian High School, I attended Northwest Nazarene University to seek an undergraduate degree in social work. In my 4th year of college, I met and married my wife Malinda. While attending college, I enjoyed working at the Booth Family Care Center (which was a homeless shelter for families), The Family Table (which was a group home for juveniles transitioning from incarceration back into the community), and volunteering at the Lighthouse Rescue Mission.

Upon graduating from NNU with a degree in social work, my wife and I moved to Twin Falls, Idaho, where I served as a developmental specialist, intensive behavior interventionist, and ultimately as the director for the Twin Falls branch of Family and Children's Therapy Services (a developmental disabilities agency). I worked in the schools, homes, and communities of the children in our program to help educate the families in how positive behavior supports can support their children's development.

In 2006, Malinda and I moved back to the Treasure Valley, because we wanted to raise our soon-to-be son in the community where his grandparents live (both Malinda's and my family live in the Treasure Valley). Cole was born in 2007, and our daughter Elise was born in 2012. I began my teaching career at Sherman Elementary, in Nampa, Idaho, in the fall of 2006 as a special education resource room teacher. During this time, I returned to NNU to earn an M.Ed related to exceptional children. In 2011 I taught at INSPIRE Connections Academy, which is an online charter school. 2012–2014 I worked with the North Star Charter School team as a special educator and elementary principal. During this time, I also served a year-long administrative internship with North Star's administrative team, as part of an educational specialist degree (completed in 2014) in building administration and director of special education.

Outside of work and school, my interests include camping, riding motorcycles, continuing education, and teaching graduate studies at a local university. Cole and I ride often; he got this first motorcycle when he was three and has learned to ride competently. I look forward to continuing to work with the families of the Bruneau-Grand View District and appreciate the opportunity to serve this great community.
