Mrs. Amy Ruddick
Dear Oakcrest Families,
Welcome back to another exciting year at Oakcrest Elementary! My name is Amy Ruddick, and I am excited to be your child’s teacher this year. This is my first year teaching First Grade here, and I am so thrilled to be back and getting to know your children!
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois and I graduated from Olivet Nazarene University in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and several middle school endorsements. Afterwards, I moved to Florida to begin my teaching career! I have taught First Grade for four years and Kindergarten for two.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time outdoors fishing, going to Disney World, and exploring the beautiful nature preserves with my husband. I also love to share these experiences as well as my experiences growing up in another state with my students, as well as getting to know them!
