Ruth SwartzbaughDepartment: Mathematics
I do not have planning since I am only at school during the afternoons. Students can reach me through remind at anytime or set up a day to stay after with me for extra help.
A little about me:Broad Run has always been home to me. I am one of nine siblings who attended and graduated. My husband is even an alumni. I have had 3 nephews to graduate and 1 niece. I started my secondary education at Longwood University, where I played soccer. I loved my time there but felt like I needed a larger school and finished at James Madison University. I did not play varisty soccer for JMU but filled my time with tutoring middleschool and highschool math students, being a camp councelor during the summer at Camp Thunderbird in SC, coaching the swim special olympics team, and traveling when I could. After college I came back to Broad Run to start my teaching career and I haven't left. I am in my 18th year of teaching and couldn't see myself any other place. I have five daughters, one dog, and a few fish at home, so I keep myself busy when not in school. I still enjoy watching soccer, but prefer cooking and hiking these days. I am excited for another year at my second home and look forward to what it brings.
