Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ruth Shetler and I feel so privileged to be one of the Title I teachers here at Meridian Elementary. I am a graduate from University of Idaho, with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education, as well as graduate from Boise State University, with my Master's in Reading. I also have my Reading Specialist endorsement, as well as my English for Speakers of Other Languages endorsement from Western Oregon University. This is my ninth year teaching. I have taught grades 1st - 3rd, and this is my second year in Title I. The best part about being a teacher is watching students learn and grow, especially when a concept has been difficult for a student to master and then he or she finally understands it. The pride and joy on his or her face is inspiring. I love that I get to be a part of that process every single day.
