MISS ALI RUETZ
BA in Elementary Education from the University of Wyoming
+ years with Aquinas Catholic Schools
+ years total teaching experience
I grew up and went to school in Wyoming. I moved back to Wisconsin in 2016 with my mom. I enjoy chaotic crafting in my spare time as well as playing video games with some of my friends from college. I've been blessed enough to travel and hope to continue to see this wonderful world of ours. Next stop is Italy.
My last 2 years teaching were spent in Kuwait teaching at an international school that taught American curriculum. It was a wonderful experience but pandemic teaching was a difficult year and I made the choice to take a year off. I'm happy to be back in the classroom for the 2022-2023 school year and very excited to be here at St. Pat's.
I don't enjoy teaching at the front of the classroom but it is necessary at times. I prefer being a facilitator of learning where my students are leading the learning and I'm just along as a guide.
