Hello My Name Is

Ruth Minellono

Welcome to Acres Green Elementary School!  I am very excited to be teaching second grade again this year and working with your wonderful children.  I have been teaching for over twenty years now, and this is my eighth year of teaching at A.G.E.  My educational background includes a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education and a Masters of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.  

Here is a little bit of information about me.  Eight years ago, I moved to Colorado from Kansas.  I am married to my wonderful husband Joe, and we have two grown children.  In my free time, I like to hike, spend time with family, travel, go for long walks, and relax.  

I look forward to working with your children and watching them grow throughout this school year.  Here's to a great year in second grade at Acres Green Elementary!
