My thanks go to 'MoMo', an insider at the Sharjah Colleges of Technology, for this revealing piece concerning Ged Ryan. The cheque's in the post, MoMo!
Ged Ryan is one of the grey men of Sharjah Women’s College. He arrived at HCT Sharjah about a decade ago after a stint at a venerable institution of higher learning in Papua New Guinea, no less. He spends his days peering over a giant pile of manila files stacked high on his desk, in the style of a dedicated and conscientous employee.
However, do not misunderestimate the cunning ruthlessness of this slime ball. He does the bidding at the call of his master, boss, and mentor - Dr Evil “Mad Freddy” Farid Ohan.
Ryan openly covets his master’s job as boss cocky at SHCT, and he has been working at his doctorate for some years now. The man is no intellectual giant and some would say, not unkindly, that the day of reckoning has long passed him by. In fact, Ged Ryan has almost definitely missed his doctorate and also missed his chance at ever getting Dr Evil’s job, because new rules in place reserve the title of college director.
Yet this has not stopped the smouldering giant. He makes life miserable for the teaching staff by arriving unannounced at class times to observe teaching practices; at other times he simply summonses some hapless teacher to his office for a grilling. If Dr Evil carries the dagger, then he does his dirty little deeds upon Ged Ryan’s twisted and bitter recommendation.
So, if you are a new teacher at Sharjah, give this misery guts a wide berth if you can. If you have been unlucky enough to get entangled in his wicked web of deceit, been threatened by his devious agenda, or had an unexpected visit to your class, it would be well worth your while to keep a packed bag ready for any emergencies.
