Ms. Eryn Ruff

Welcome parents and students to 7th grade Science! I am beyond excited to be your teacher this year and help you reach your highest potential. It's going to be fun year of learning!

For college, I attended the University of Pittsburgh where I received my bachelor’s in Applied Developmental Psychology in 2013 and my master’s in Early Childhood Education (PreK-4th) and Special Education (PreK-8th) in 2014. I am also highly qualified in Middle School Science, Math, and ELA. This will be my 7th year teaching as well as my 7th year at Hickory Ridge Middle School.

To tell you a little bit about myself, I am originally from Buffalo, New York and I grew up in a family of six! I have an older brother as well as a younger brother and sister who are twins. When I moved to Charlotte in 2014, I adopted my dog Levi. I am an adventurous person who enjoys hiking, snowboarding/wakesurfing, riding rollercoasters, and skydiving (only once, but I'd love to go again!) Fall is my favorite time of year as I LOVE the colorful leaves and watching scary movies!
