"There ain't no rules around here! We're trying to accomplish something!"
Thomas Alva Edison
(1847 - 1931)
|Mrs. Ring was born and raised in a small New England town, Fairhaven, Massachusetts. She spent most of her family time and summers on the beaches of Cape Cod. Upon high school graduation, Mrs. Ring went to a small college in Connecticut, Quinnipiac College (now Quinnipiac University), to study physical therapy. Realizing that this wasn't the field for her, Mrs. Ring graduated with a B.A. in biology in 1994. She continued her studies there and earned her M.A.T. in secondary education with a specialization in science. She immediately began teaching 7th grade and has been teaching middle level science since 1996. During her first year as a teacher, Mrs. Ring earned her 6th year certificate (30 hours beyond a masters degree) as a Science Specialist through the ISIS program at Southern Connecticut State University.
In 1999, Mrs. Ring moved to Arizona and began teaching in the Chandler Unified School District. In 2014, Mrs. Ring earned her second masters degree, an M.Ed. in educational leadership through ASU. She currently holds an Arizona principal certificate and teaching certificates in grades 7-12 general science and grades 7-12 biology; she also possesses endorsements in grades 5-9 and SEI. Mrs. Ring loves working with junior high students...they are filled with energy and excitement. No two days are ever alike as we have fun and learn simultaneously!
From a personal perspective, Mrs. Ring is a wife to James, a Hamilton math teacher, and mom to three boys: Collin, Andrew, and Bryson. Collin, an 11th grader, and Andrew, a 9th grader, are Hamilton Huskies; Bryson, a 6th grader, is a Santan Stormer! We enjoy our family time together at local sporting events (ASU - Suns, Dbacks), the beaches of San Diego & Cape Cod, our own activities, and watching our Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics on TV!
