The Ammon Story

Learn about the School of Education's namesake, Ruth S. Ammon ’42, and her daughter Carol Ammon, MBA ’79.

In my 5th year, I was incredibly fortunate to be a part of the Mineola Residency Program where I was able to do a full year residency as my student teaching experience. It was an experience that greatly shaped the teacher that I am today. I was able to see the impact a dedicated educator can have on the lives of each of their students. At the end of my residency, I was lucky enough to be hired as a 6th grade Dual Language teacher at Mineola Middle School, which truly brought my experience full circle.
