Our 2016-17 Milken Educators

Photo 20 of 33 Mississippi - Allison Ruhl

Allison Ruhl (MS '16) | First-grade teacher, Madison Station Elementary | Madison, MS

Date of Award: January 11, 2017

Allison Ruhl describes herself as normally very "calm, cool and collected," but her Milken Educator Award notification took her completely by surprise—just the way we like it! A teacher leader, Allison is sought out by colleagues for her innovative ideas, problem-solving skills and visionary perspective. In her classroom, Allison sets high expectations and differentiates instruction to meet the needs of every student she teaches. And her methods work: By the end of each year, 95% of Ruhl’s students meet or exceed grade-level expectations in reading.
