Meet the New Athletic Director!

Meet the new Athletic Director!

Mountain View is excited to welcome new Athletic Director, Ryan Walstrom, to the 2023-2024 school year.

Walstrom is not only the new Athletic Director, but his position also gives him the title of Assistant Principal. To give a brief and simple overview of his job, Walstrom explained, “I oversee all aspects of the athletic programs and also help with other school activities.” Previously, Walstrom was a physical education and health teacher for seven years at Greeley West. His main focus was being a strength and conditioning coach, “…because I enjoyed working with a wide variety of students.” When asked what he hopes to bring to the Mountain View community, Walstrom gave a simple yet heartfelt answer, “I hope to bring a passion to help students develop/enjoy what they are passionate doing while becoming lifelong learners.” Along with his hope to bring passion to students, Walstrom is also just excited to be a part of the Mountain View community and “[help] Mountain View continue to grow from its short, but notable history known in Northern Colorado.”

Outside of school, Walstrom is a family man and a Colorado native. At home, Walstrom is married to his wife Margaret with whom he has two daughters, Hazel and Pearl, and two dogs, Bo and Kenna. When asked if he was from Colorado, Walstrom perked up explaining, “I am! I was born and raised in La Salle, Colorado. Graduated from Valley High School. All my education has been done in Colorado- undergrad, masters, and principal license.” Later in the interview he added a nice sentiment, “Northern Colorado is my home and I enjoy having the opportunity to serve [the community] where I have had the opportunity to grow into the person I am today.”

Walstrom ended the interview with a straightforward but important message to the students, “Live and learn while having no regrets!”
