Ruth Myers is an experienced public educator of sixteen years and is excited about teaching the
students at the Franklin School of Innovation. She loves to teach history and makes the information
interesting and exciting through engaging lessons. She believes that studying history reveals models of
good and responsible citizenship. History is also important because it teaches us how to learn from the
mistakes of others so that each of us can become good citizens and develop a greater appreciation for
current events today.
Mrs. Myers is proud of her service in the Army and was stationed at Teufelsberg in Berlin, Germany as a morse code operator from 1980-1985. She received a distinction at the high school she previously taught at in Florida for knowing all the veterans in her small town, as she believes it is important to bring veterans into the classroom to share their experiences.
Mrs. Myers and her husband, Bobby, moved to Waynesville from New Smyrna Beach, Florida this
summer. They have been working on a cabin for a few years and decided to follow their hearts and
make a permanent move; they could not be happier. They have four children between them. Ruth earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Florida International University in 1993, and earned her master’s degree in Adolescent Literacy and Technology from Walden University in 2010.
