My name is April Caruthers and this is my third year to teach in Eagle Mountain- Saginaw ISD. I have been teaching for 16 years and have experience in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. Teaching 5th grade science is by far my favorite teaching assignment. I have always loved learning and teaching science. I have a degree in Genetics from Texas A&M University. Gig ‘Em!!! I have my masters in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Science Education from the University of North Texas.
I am married to Shane Caruthers who is a high school teacher and soccer coach in Fort Worth. We keep busy with our three boys. Owen is six years old, Luke is five years old and Samuel is three years old. Our life at home hardly ever slows down but that is how we like it.
I am so excited to be teaching at Chisholm Ridge Elementary. I hope to share my love of science with all my students, so that one day maybe they too might pursue a career in science.
