Ms. Alice R. Ruffin

Welcome newcomers and returning families! My name is Ms. Ruffin and I am the Intervention Specialist for scholars in the 1-3 grade band. I am excited and looking forward to continue working and building new relationships with families and within the community. I have been with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District since January 2011. I am eager to engage and inspire ALL students, because “Every Student can Learn,” and can reach their full academic and personal potential. My goals are to ensure a safe learning environment for scholars, create new and interesting ways to learn different subjects, promote a growth mindset, enhance lines of communication, build relationships and establish partnerships between scholars, caregivers, and community. I am looking forward to having fun while learning!
