Welcome! My name is Ruth Stokes and I teach 4th Grade Reading, ELA, Social Studies, Science, and Math at Barbara Jordan Elementary School. This is my fourth year teaching. I taught at Mission Glen Elementary for my first two years of teaching. Before that, I volunteered at the school and observed teachers throughout my college experience. I was also a subsitute for a little while! I graduaded from Sam Houston State University in December 2014. Eat Em Up Kats!!
I was born in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, and then moved to the United States right before starting third grade. It was a surprising experience, but I love it here! I also enjoy having dual Canadian and American citizenship. In my spare time, I enjoy time outdoors with my two dogs, Chloe and Keller. Keller is deaf! It is challenging dealing with a dog who can't hear me, but it has taught me some great techniques for getting the attention of students who aren't listening!
For the 2018-2019 school year, I am a sponsor for the BJE Coding and Robotics Club.
