A native of the U.K., Ruth has a degree in French and German from Oxford University. After graduating, she moved to Louisiana and became interested in the Montessori approach to teaching when her two sons attended the Montessori School for Shreveport. She obtained her Elementary I Teaching Credential while living in Memphis, Tennessee, and has never looked back! She finds it a joy to share the learning process with students in the LE classroom, where each individual is respected, encouraged and celebrated. In her spare time, Ruth enjoys yoga, tai chi, playing the piano, calligraphy, reading and travel.
