Ruth Calkins

Kindergarten Teacher

Ruth Calkins is a kindergarten teacher who is also a freelance writer. She loves to write about what she’s learned (and is still learning) during her 20+ years as an educator. She has also taught technology, second grade, and third grade. These different experiences have given her a wealth of strategies and knowledge she brings into her kindergarten classroom. When she isn’t writing or molding young minds, you can find her reading, writing, watching TV, or going to the movies. Her writing website can be found at
