• Hello!


    I am Ms. Rutz and I teach Social Studies here at Ragsdale High School. In years past, I have taught Honors, Inclusion and Standard Civics, Economics, and Personal Finance, AP US Government and Politics, as well as Honors American History II. I am so excited to be teaching the Civics stand alone course and AP US Government and Politics in the 2022-2023 school year!

    I received my Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology from the University of Mary Washington in my home state of Virginia. After moving to the Triad of North Carolina, I went back for my Master's Degree at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where I taught for the UNCG Libraries Special Collections and University Archives for Community Instruction Program on Primary and Secondary Source Research and had the opportunity of being apart of the Honor Society for Education- Kappa Delta Pi, as well as the nation's oldest Academic Honor Society for all academic disciplines, Phi Kappa Phi. During my time at UNCG, I was placed at Ragsdale for student teaching and have been proud to be a Tiger ever since!
