About RuthK

My PLACE is Charlottesville!

*Community Involvement  –  Volunteering in the JABA-FISH  program as an ESL Tutor/Mentor at Jackson-Via ES, a Charlottesville City school in the very diverse and energetic Fry’s Spring neighborhood close to the University of Virginia.  I am also a UVa Hospital Auxiliary Volunteer knitting to spread the warmth in Charlottesville through Knitting Together,

I was so pleased to serve as a CS First Guru rkastenmayer3for the Jackson-Via Computer Club, and I hope that I will have the opportunity to do that again someday. 

*An Active & Healthy Lifestyle  –  Focusing on nutrition and fitness for Healthy Aging. My favorite course during ten years of teaching at Judson College in Marion, Alabama, was BIO 204: Biochemical Nutrition, and a highlight each year was the Nutrition Dinner at the end of the course.

*Lifelong Learning  – Enjoying  MOOCs, my new Lifelong Learning hobby. I hope that the world’s top universities will continue to be so generous with their courses for many years to come!

I am a retired Webmaster,  Instructor in Web Design and Development, and Director of the Judson College Center for Teaching/Learning & Technology.

  1. Hello, Ruth
    So nice to find someone from Cville! I wish that I had met you BEFORE the EDCMOOC began, oh, well! I love the background image of the Downtown Mall that you selected!

    1. Hi Laurie!
      Thanks! My husband took the picture, and it just seemed to work with this theme. We often have coffee at Baggby’s on Saturday mornings when the weather is nice, so this is part of our PLACE in Cville.

  2. Thanks very much, RuthK, for helping me find my place in Charlottesville! Great blog!
