Meet the Teacher: Annie Wrucke
Mrs. Wrucke has been teaching since 2019. She graduated from Mount Vernon Nazarene University and taught reading intervention before joining us at St. Vincent de Paul in 2020.
She loves teaching 3rd grade and her goals in teaching are to help students cultivate a love for learning.
She loves the outdoors and spending time with her husband and dog.
What year did you start teaching at STV? What do you teach at STV? 2020, 3rd grade
What awards have you ever received in you life? Helping Hands Award for community service in 2018
What do you enjoy most about work? My goal as a teacher is to cultivate a love of learning in each student, so my favorite part of work is seeing my students having fun and being curious while learning.
When you're not working, what do you do?
When I'm not working, I hike, play with my dog, lead worship at church, play games with my husband and friends, and crochet.
What's the best advice you've ever received? The best advice I have received is to just take the next right step. This has helped me focus on the next thing I need to do and not become overwhelmed.
What or who can't you live without? I can't live without food; nobody can. But, I love to cook and eat new things!
The best part about waking up? The best part of waking up is Folgers in my cup. Just kidding! I actually don't drink coffee very often because it makes me very jittery. The actual best part of waking up is knowing that the day is full of opportunities and knowing that God will be with me no matter what.
If you won the lottery, what would you do first? If I won the lottery, I would buy a bigger house; not too big though. I just need a couple of rooms for future children and a nice guest room for my parents to come and stay in. Currently, we have a two bedroom house. The living room is the kitchen and dining room and laundry room, so lottery money would definitely go towards a house with those rooms being separate.
We would like to thank Annie Wrucke for participating in our Meet the Teacher feature!
