Shivers, Ruth (5th Grade)

Mrs. Shivers
Hello and Welcome to 5th grade!

My name is Ruth Shivers and I teach 5th grade English Language Arts and Social Studies at Black Mountain Elementary.  I just completed my 20th year in Buncombe County Schools and have been a classroom teacher as well as a Title I Reading Specialist during those 20 years.  I team teach with a compassionate and caring team teacher, Caroline Clark, who teaches Math and Science on the "Shark Team" as we like to call our blended classrooms.

My husband and I live in Black Mountain and are proud pet owners to two adult kitties named Lilly and Maxine.  We also spend time with our shared dog, Kymba, on the weekends.  I have two adult children who are both married and I'm a grandma (Mimi) to our beautiful 5 year old grand daughter.  

I love to hike and take walks, read and watch movies in my free time.  I also like to refresh my mind and body by doing yoga.  I am excited to meet you this year and want to help you grow as a life long reader to become the best you can be!
