Celebrating Brand-New & Long-Time Educators

At the ACSC Back-To-School Celebration on July 27, we celebrated three notable Avon educators. Our annual “Baby Oriole Just Hatched” award goes to the person who was most recently hired, and we recognize the people who have the longest tenure in Avon Schools, our “Golden Oldie Orioles.” Thank you, Mrs. Ruiz, Mrs Albaugh, and Mr. Ayers, for your years (or weeks) of service!

Breann Ruiz

Mrs. Ruiz teaches kindergarten at Pine Tree. She joined staff 12 hours before the Back-To-School Celebration.

“I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I love interacting with children. I love to watch them make connections between our content and their everyday lives. I’m proud to be on the team at Pine Tree Elementary."

Becky Albaugh

Mrs. Albaugh is a Special Education Assistant at AHS. She has served Avon students for 42 years.

“What I do here has never seemed like a job to me. When I first started, it was something for me to do while my kids were in school and still be available for them when they were home. It very soon became more of a passion and a purpose. It is just part of what makes me who I am.”

Gary Ayers

Mr. Ayers teaches Technology Education at AHS. He’s been serving Avon students for 39 years.

“I never intended to become a teacher. I started in Architecture but switched to teaching with my roommate’s encouragement. I have never regretted the choice. Seeing students learn is the ultimate thrill. On top of that, I love the dedication and positive environment at Avon High School.”
