A giant thank you to Beth Ruark, G.A.L.A.’s March volunteer of the month! Beth is an expert in curriculum development and offered her insight and skills while G.A.L.A. was building curriculum for the Sustain-A-Raiser Starter Kit. Beth led G.A.L.A. staff through the process and structure for creating a well thought-out and useful curriculum. Additionally, she share resources and helped revise the final document. Thank you!
Beth is Emily Richey’s (G.A.L.A. AmeriCorps VISTA) mother and makes her home on the beautiful shore of Lake Superior in Duluth, Minnesota. She is the Secondary and Early Childhood Student Teacher Placement Coordinator at the University of Minnesota, Duluth and has been a teacher for more than 25 years. Along with placing student teachers, Beth teaches several education courses (about curriculum development!) and spends her summers teaching environmental education camps for pre-schoolers at Hartley Nature Center. Beth loves hiking, banding birds of prey, and traveling.
Thank you Beth! We greatly appreciate your help and advice!!
