Hello! My name is Rene Ryman and I shall teach business classes at iForward. I am a native of the Chicago area where I was born and raised. I have a been teaching college level classes for more than ten years and I am very excited to work with high school students for the first time in my career. I was in school as a student for a very long time as I went to Elmhurst College where I received a B.S degree, I have an M.A. degree from the University of Denver, an M.B.A. from The Lake Forest School of Management, and I have a D.B.A. from Argosy University in Santa Ana, CA. I also completed my post doctorate studies at the University of Southern California. In my free time I like to ride my horse named Luc and play with my cat Buddy. I also enjoy swimming and hiking. I’m a Packers and Chicago Cub fan – and I absolutely love the Chicago Blackhawks! I am very much looking forward to working with all of my students.
