Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Ruth Van Tuyle

I am thrilled to be a part of the Bobcat community this school year. My previous teaching experiences include teaching in Florida, Fairfax County, and most recently here in Loudoun County. I am an alum of Florida State University where I received both my Bachelors and Masters in Special Education.  

I have 5 children that keep me busy and on my toes. In the free time that I have, I enjoy spending time with family, cheering my kids on at their sporting events, going for walks, and coaching a high school swim team.  

My mission as a special education teacher is to create an inclusive and engaging learning environment where students recognise and use their strengths to succeed.  All students can learn and succeed, just not in the same way! 

Cheers to a fun and exciting year with the Algonkian family!
