Ruth Godwin

Hello, I'm Mrs. Ruth Godwin.

pic  Hello.  My name is Ruth Godwin.  This is my 2nd year at UA.  In class we use a lot of student-led discussion to dive into new topics and review.
In my leisure time, I enjoy reading, traveling, and playing at the park with my 6 year old daughter, Liath. 
I look forward to learning with your student this year.

Welcome to 1st grade!
