    Dear Families of the Waynesville Sixth Grade Center,

    My name is Jamie Goforth, and I am honored to be starting my fifth year as principal of the Waynesville 6th Grade Center.  In the past, I have taught fifth grade and served as assistant principal of a fourth and fifth-grade building in the Lebanon School District. I truly enjoyed getting to work with students during those beginning years of school. I am excited to be working with sixth-grade students as they begin their journey into middle school. Teaching sixth-grade students has been a passion of mine for a very long time. It is my belief that this age is a very pivotal one and one where great strides can be made in empowering all students to reach their highest potential. I am a strong proponent of teamwork and teaching the “whole” child.

    I have been married to my husband, Jamie, for 18 years and we have one son, Jackson, who is 15.   When I am not at school, I treasure spending time with family, being my son’s baseball team’s loudest supporter, and of course shopping.

    Again, I am truly honored to get to serve the community in this capacity.  I am committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure that all students have the opportunity to reach their highest potential. Please feel free to call or email me at jgoforth@waynesville.k12.mo.us.

    I am Ruth Ann Justus. I have been with Waynesville School District for 21 years. I first started out as a paraprofessional in the Autism room at Pick Elementary. Throughout my teaching career I have taught 1st and 2nd grades, both on and off post. I am excited to begin my 4th year at WSGC! Their year in 6th grade is a vital year as we prepare students for their transition to middle school and help empower students to reach their highest potential.

    I have been married to my husband, Jay, for 15 years. We have two sons, Colton and Dian.  Colton just graduated from Waynesville in May of 2021 and will be attending OTC in the fall for Heating and Cooling. Dian will be an 8th grader at Waynesville Middle School. When I am not at school, I enjoy watching Dian play sports, spending time with my family and serving alongside my husband with his real estate business.

    Again, I am very excited to be serving the community at the Sixth Grade Center. Please feel free to contact me anytime at rjustus@waynesville.k12.mo.us
