SecMAC alumna Abby Ruehlmann featured in AAPS District News


Eighth grade teacher and SecMAC alumna Abby Ruehlmann (AB `14, AM `16) was featured in the “Exceptional Teachers” section of AAPS District News. Clague Middle School principal Che’ Carter said that “Abby is a great communicator with her families and students and exudes positive energy and meets students where they are, while pushing them to be more.”

In the article, Ruehlmann explains how she engages with her students: “I motivate and differentiate a lot through choice so that students are intrinsically interested as often as possible, and I’m a kook—an enthusiastic, passionate, optimistic, kook.” She explains that the most rewarding part of teaching is that, every day, she feels as though she’s doing the most important thing she’ll ever do in her life.
