Mrs. Burke, Ruthie
I have enjoyed teaching at ROMS since 2007 in English/Language Arts. Prior to that I taught first grade for three years at Life School in Oak Cliff.
I graduated from Waxahachie High School and then attended SAGU in Waxahachie. I graduated with a B.S. degree in Music, and later earned my alternative certification through Region 10 to begin teaching. I am certified in EC-4, 4-8 ELAR, and ESL.
I am married and have 4 daughters and we have lived in Red Oak for 6 years. My oldest daughter is married and has a baby, our only granddaughter, named Henni after my mom. We also have 3 dogs, a malti-poo named Sugar, a Chihuahua named Bruiser, and a beautiful German shepherd named Captain. I love to travel, and since I have many cousins in Norway, enjoy that destination the most. I also enjoy reading, swimming, and lots and lots of watermelon.
I am teaching Pre-AP Language Arts 8th grade. I am also teaching 2 SOAR classes, to support students in Language Arts skills.
My conference time is 9:00-9:55. I would be happy to visit with you!
