Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kristie Rutyna

Welcome to fifth grade!!  I am so excited to be working with your children this year.  I have been teaching at Elms since it opened in September 2003.  I have taught first grade, third grade, fourth grade, and now I am looking forward to teaching fifth grade!! 

I am a mother of two beautiful children, Christopher and Maddie.  Christopher is starting his eighth grade year and Maddie is starting her sixth grade year. This picture is really old (and missing Mr. Rutyna!!), but I love it!!
