Welcome to Ms. Ruden's Home Page
I am excited to be the new science and mathematics teacher at St. Joseph Catholic School for the 2019-2020 academic school year. In 2011, I received my degree in Elementary Education, and last year, I received my Master of Science in Education in science and mathematics. I have taught Kindergarten-8th, and most recently, I taught 4th-8th grade science at St. Catherine of Siena in West Dundee, Illinois.
I have chosen to teach in a Catholic school because I have grown up Catholic and I want to be a positive Christian role model for my students. I believe in teaching the whole student by educating their mind, body, and spirit. In my spare time, when I am not watching my children play sports, cheerleading, dance, or tumbling, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have four children a 20-year-old son, a set of girl/boy twins who are 14, and a 10-year-old daughter. I also enjoy spending time with friends, traveling, and being outdoors. I am excited to get to know the parents, students, and faculty at St. Joseph.
