Ruth (Heider) Armao was born and raised with 5 siblings in Nebraska. She graduated from Concordia University, Nebraska and has taught for 35 years in various Lutheran Schools located in California, Nebraska, Illinois, and Indiana. Her favorite part about teaching is that she can create a learning environment that is engaging to the students as well as herself!! :) She is the Art Department Head, Early Childhood Director and a member of the Lutheran Education Association. Her husband, Robert, is the Campus Pastor at Lutheran High School. Bob and Ruth have two grown children and are proud grandparents! In her spare time, Ruth enjoys cuddling their dog, Bailey, baking, calligraphy, and going to the movies with her husband.
