for their education improvements, she feels she would be giving back to society.
“I’m pushing myself to grow and learn about other cultures and celebrate other ways of living and serving,” Ruff said. “I’ve always done that since I was little.”
Prior to coming to Wolf Point, Ruff was the only white person in a 100 percent African American school in Washington, D.C.. She also helped start a school in a low income area.
“I put myself in places where I can serve but not change communities,” Ruff said. “I want to uplift a community, not change it.”
She feels her time as Wolf Point’s curricular director has been successful. Achievements have included introducing a writing program where students tell their own stories and introducing personalized learning.
“I’m hoping those two things continue long after I’m gone,” Ruff said.
