Ruth Erickson

I graduated from high school in New Jersey and moved to Tucson where I attended the University of Arizona.  I student-taught at Amphitheater High School, but made my professional home at Canyon del Oro High School.  I have been a teacher at CDO for more than 20 years. Currently, I am the Distance Learning Coordinator and Psychology Teacher.  Over the last two decades, I have worn the following hats:

     * Alternative Education Teacher

     * Career Ladder Facilitator

     * Social Studies Department Chairperson

     * Government, Economics, Psychology, AP Psychology, AP Government and Politics, World History and IB Theory of Knowledge Teacher

     * Distance Learning Coordinator

Canyon del Oro is a very special place for me personally, as well as professionally, because I met my husband here (while he was also a teacher here) and my daughter graduated from high school here.
