Mrs. Ruth Ann Justus, Principal
Dear Families of the Waynesville Sixth Grade Center,
My name is Ruth Ann Justus, I am honored to be starting my fifth year at Waynesville Sixth Grade Center and the first year as Principal. I have been with Waynesville School District for 22 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. The past 4 years, I have been at WSGC, 3 years as an Intern Administrator, and last year as the Assistant Principal.
I am excited to be working with sixth-grade students as they begin their journey into middle school. 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, Jay, for 16 years. We have two sons, Colton and Dian. Colton graduated from Waynesville in May of 2021. He is working with a local Heating and Cooling company. Dian will be a 9th grader at Waynesville High School. When I am not at school, I enjoy watching Dian play sports, spending time with my family, and serving alongside my husband in 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
