I’m Ruth, the creator of Teacher Park, where I share my teaching ideas, my K-12 lessons, children’s books, exciting authors and more. I love sharing unique websites of any subject. My blog posts also include humorous and poignant teaching moments. I’m a true believer that a teacher must laugh with her students, and laugh at herself, in order to make education fun, exciting and real!
I’m an avid fan of Howard Gardner’s “Multiple Intelligences” theory and for that reason, I often integrate music and art into my lessons. I’m a classical pianist, play acoustic guitar, sing and have dabbled in the arts all my life, so adding music and art to classroom activities is a natural fit for me.
My husband and I love to travel. Our German friends live on Lake Constance in southern Germany. so during our visits, we explore areas of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. One of our favorite experiences was taking a tram to the top of one of the oldest fortresses in Salzburg, Austria, to hear a Mozart concert. Our hotel parking garage was deep in a mountain that was an old salt mine, where the Austrians hid during WWII. The ceilings and walls were tiled with gorgeous pictures of the area. The German word “salz” means “salt” in English. Tours through the Salzburg salt mines were amazing!
Our family is spread out across the United States so getting together for the holidays is very special!
We have two dachshunds who keep us laughing 24/7. They’re the clowns of the dog world and sometimes I think they’re smarter than we are! LOL
