Walsh University Honors Mrs. Ruef

Walsh Write-Up Pic 5-7-18Congratulations to Whipple Heights Elementary Intervention Specialist Kristy Ruef on being chosen by Walsh University in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week as their most inspiring teacher. Nominated by former student Jon Larkins, Mrs. Ruef was chosen from a group of nearly 30 finalists submitted from all over northeast Ohio for the honor. Mrs. Ruef was Jon’s 4th grade teacher. He is now a junior at Walsh University majoring in education.

“Mrs. Ruef pours her heart and soul into the lives of her students inside and outside of the classroom,” Larkins said.  “She not only inspired me when I was a student, she inspired me to attend Walsh University to pursue an Early Childhood Intervention Specialist degree just like she did. I hope to be as much of a positive influence in the lives of my future students as Mrs. Ruef was for me.”  (more…)

Additionally, when it’s time to change the board students receive a small token from Mr. Hug to reinforce his pride and excitement in their display of hard work.  (more…)
