Hello, my name is Kathleen Ruse. I am the 6th Grade Homeroom Teacher, and teach 6th and 7th Grade Science, 6th through 8th Grade Math and the Junior High Math Resource. I grew up in a large family in Toledo, Ohio. I attended the University of Toledo where I received a BA in Education with majors in Biology and Chemistry. I also hold a Masters in Academic Leadership from California Lutheran University. My family is scattered over the United States in Northern and Southern California, Texas and Maryland. I am a avid hiker and exercise enthusiast and have been training in Pilates for the past six years. Whenever possible I ride horses and play tennis.
