Shivers, Ruth (5th Grade)


Mrs. Ruth Shivers
Hello!  My name is Ruth Shivers and I am the Title I Reading Specialist at Black Mountain Elementary School.  I am an avid reader and I am always looking for books that are interesting, thoughtful and fun for students to read.  I am married, have two grown children and have recently become a grandmother to a beautiful granddaughter.  I have two cats, named Lilly and Maxine, and a dog named Kymba.
 My interests include reading, taking walks with Kymba, watching movies, shopping and traveling.  I absolutely love living in the mountains and seeing the beautiful scenery from our school campus each day.  One of my goals, as a teacher, is to inspire young readers to love the books they are reading. 
 I am always open to having a conversation about how to help your child become a better reader.  I hope to meet you soon at a school event.
