Mrs. Ruth Schmalz

My name is Ruth Schmalz. I was born and grew up in San Marcos, TX. I went to college at Texas State University and earned a degree in Psychology with a minor in Family and Child Development. I later went back to school in the field of Education for a Teaching Certificate for Early Childhood through 6th grade. I am ESL certified and GT certified. I have been teaching for over 20 years in numerous capacities, such as leading classes at my church, long term substitute in military schools, and long term substitute roles in numerous schools throughout South Texas. This is my 4th year with FBISD at Madden Elementary. I am a Kindergarten teacher at Madden and previously taught 2nd grade. My husband, sons, and I live in Richmond, TX. We have lived here for 15 years. Our family enjoys sporting events together, like football and baseball. We love the Houston Texans, Astros, and the Aggies. I enjoy baking, sewing, all kinds of crafts, photography, walks with our two Golden Retrievers, any activity outdoors, and time with my family.
