Hi, I’m Cathy Ruszel. Teaching in the Library Media Center is the best job I’ve ever had! I’m always learning through books and research. I get to see all of the students once a week and love to watch them grow from wiggly little kindergartners to mature 8th graders about to embark on a new adventure in high school. In the library I get to introduce and nurture a love of literature and information literacy and technology. Each year is a new adventure for me and it’s fun to choose new books to share. I’ve been teaching at Thorp for 28 years. Before coming to Thorp I taught High School Biology and Middle School Science. I love reading, musicals, hanging out with my dog Clover and spending time with family and friends. Sometimes my yard looks like a mini dog park as Clover plays with neighborhood dogs of all sizes!
