My name is Tim Ruff, 4th Grade teacher in the Alma School District, and Head Baseball Coach for the Pepin-Alma Eagles. I also teach 5th and 6th grade Social Studies in our district. My primary goal each year is to ensure every student has a memorable and enjoyable school year to spark their interest and learning in school. In addition, it is a huge focus of mine to challenge students to grow academically and reach their highest potential.
Being an Alma graduate in 2009, it was a dream come true to teach in the district where I grew up in. After high school, I furthered my education at Winona State University and graduated with an Elementary Education degree and Coaching minor. I spent a semester as a 5th grade student teacher at Bluff View Elementary in Lake City before spending two years as a 1st grade teacher in the Pepin School District.
During my free time, I spend a lot of time working on our family hobby farm. I also spend a lot of time bow hunting in the fall. My summer's are quite busy on the ball field when I'm off the farm. I have coached Little League baseball for 12 years in Alma, and also coach the Pepin-Alma Eagles Varsity and Legion team in the spring and summer. Many also know I am an avid Minnesota sports fan and often spend my night's cheering on the Twins, Gophers, Vikings, and Timberwolves. Aside from that, I spend a lot of time with my friends and family.
