Ingrid Palmer


Thank you for visiting my page! My name is Ingrid Palmer-Ruddle, and I love teaching middle schoolers! This is my first year in Elmhurst 205, but my 5th year teaching. I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd Grade, and 7th & 8th Grade History. I am from Illinois, but spent the last two years teaching near Grand Rapids, Michigan. This year I will be teaching 8th Grade English and Science, and I am so thrilled to be at Churchville! My husband and I are excited to back in my home state, closer to our friends and family.  I love Chicago sports teams (GO CUBS!), traveling, spending time with friends and family, biking, hiking, reading, camping, cheerleading, horseback riding, soccer, and cooking. I know that my students and I will have an amazing year learning and growing together! I plan to bring my best everyday, and I expect the same from my students! :)
