My name isschoolpic 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. 

This is my first year teaching in the Alma School district. 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 spend 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.
