Ruth Chapin's Web Page
Greetings! This is Ruth Chapin's web page. I am the new S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Seminar teacher. On this page you will find my brief bio (a little about me), my qualifications (my degrees and certificates), hours I am available to students, and ways and times you can get in touch with me. Along the side of the page is a list of links you might find useful, and I encourage you to browse through them.
Here is a little about me, I am an Arizona native, which means I have endured many hot summers, and they don't get any easier. I live here with my husband and our son, who was born in 2016, so he's still figuring life out. I love spending time with my family. We are definitely into nursery rhyme songs, at the moment, and have listened to them probably more times than I care to count.
This is my 16th year teaching, which means I've been teaching longer than some of my students have been alive, which is a scary thought. This is my 10th year as an ESS teacher, Exceptional Student Services, and before that I taught for 6 years as a general education math teacher. This is my first year as a S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Seminar teacher, and I am really enjoying the entire experience.
I hold two separate teaching certificates, one in Secondary Education - Specialization Mathematics, and one in Cross-Categorical Special Education.
I have attended ASU West Campus, UoP Online Campus, and NAU Online Campus. I have three degrees, one Bachelors and two Masters.
My "hours of operation" are from 7 am to around 3 pm. I sign out students for Advisory on almost every day of the week, and encourage students throughout the day to come. This gives me a smaller atmosphere with which to provide tutoring or assistance on what we are doing in class.
The main information line, with lots of options, is 602-764-4000. You can also reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I encourage you to message me about anything that concerns you.
Thanks for reading through my webpage. Again, if I can be helpful to you, please feel free to reach out; I am only a click away!
