Mrs. Ruth Muturi


My name is Ruth Muturi. I am a 5th grade teacher at Hightower Elementary. This is my 13th year at Hightower Elementary, and I'm so glad to be part of the Hightower family. I love when students can make connections and experience Aha moments while learning!

On a personal note, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Aggrey, and my two amazing girls, Asachi and Alexa. When I'm not teaching, I love to read, listen to podcasts or TED talks, workout, and travel.
