Mrs. Alysa Ruminski

Mrs. Ruminski is excited to begin her fourth year at Cedar Lane and transition into her new role as the Gifted Resource Teacher. She is originally from Pennsylvania and graduated from Penn State, and earned her masters from George Mason University. In addition to teaching 5th grade at Cedar Lane, Mrs. Ruminski spent several years in Fairfax County as a teacher in their gifted program. She is looking forward to supporting and challenging students beyond the curriculum and encourage deeper learning. She enjoys implementing real-world and hands-on experiences for students and enjoys incorporating PBL and PL. 

Mrs. Ruminski lives with her husband and two sons, Greyson and Brooks, and their dog, Cooper. When she's not teaching, she enjoys reading, working out, and most of all, spending time with her family. She is looking forward to building strong relationships and working hand in hand with parents, staff, and students. Together they will create opportunities for students to engage in critical thinking activities, collaboration, and become innovative creators!
