Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Shauna Ruden, or Mrs. Ruden, as the students know me. I am delighted to be teaching at Nimitz School. I received my undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of California at Los Angeles. After many years in the financial industry my involvement with my son’s education helped me realize that my passion in life is for children and teaching. I received my teaching credential from Santa Clara University and a dream job teaching at Nimitz Elementary School. Several years ago, I earned my National Board Certification in Literacy: Reading-Language Arts/Early and Middle Childhood. I am very excited to work with you, your family, and your child. Please do not hesitate to contact me regarding any issues you may be concerned about. I believe in keeping the lines of communication open between parents and teacher. Together we shape your child’s school experience.
