Mrs. Ruth Bot

Teaching is in my blood and has been all of my life.  I followed in my Mother's footsteps and became a Business Education teacher.  It has been a wild ride and I have enjoyed it immensely!  

Throughout my years in Minneota, I have taught a wide variety of business and computer courses.  These included everything from typing to shorthand to accounting to economics to computer graphics and website design.  In the past I have also advised National  Honor Society, the yearbook, and student council.  

This year I am stepping outside my comfort zone and subbing long-term in the elementary for Mrs. Sara Boerboom.  It is interesting and I have been enjoying working with some of our younger students at Minneota Public School.

I want to thank the people of Minneota, Ghent, Taunton, and Ivanhoe for allowing me to teach your children.  It has been a joy and an honor to see your kids every day in my classroom.  They are each special and I hope they know that my classroom is always a safe place for them.  Kids in today's world have so much to deal with and I am always ready to listen, help, and be there for them.
