7th Grade Math / Science
My name is Rue Graham. I am thrilled to be on this journey at Renaissance Secondary School teaching math and science on the 7th grade team! I have first-hand experience and intimate understanding about the importance of taking learning far beyond the four walls of the classroom. Throughout my own education I was afforded many opportunities to experience learning in authentic ways and am excited to provide similar experiences for my students!
I am a Colorado native and an avid outdoor enthusiast. My passion for alternative learning opportunities and my desire to travel led me to first attend college in Vermont. There I explored outdoor education, sustainable agriculture, and natural history. After discovering my passion for teaching, I moved to Arizona and graduated from Prescott College with a BA in secondary education and environmental studies. I have worked at Jefferson County Open School and at Mountain Vista high school in Highlands Ranch.
My most recent endeavor, however, is learning the art of parenting. I have been fortunate to stay at home with my daughter Hazel for the first few months, but am excited to be back at school. I am looking forward to the upcoming school year and meeting you all!
