Ruth Tierney

Ruth has worked in the early childhood education, infant through Pre-K, for 30 years. Working in both the private and public sectors of the field, she has moved from positions in the classroom through curriculum specialist, landing in administration as an Education Services Manager for a Community Action agency. Becoming excited about CLASS as an administrator and staff developer, Ruth started her relationship with Teachstone as a guest blogger through the Teachstone Ambassador initiative. Joining the team as a CLASS Staff Trainer, Ruth feels she can capitalize on sharing her passion and solid belief in the importance of staff development and assisting teachers in understanding the importance of making the most of every interaction with their students. Relocating with her husband and dog to the beautiful mountains of Virginia, has brought Ruth closer to her love of nature and history.
