Mrs. Ruth McCario

My name is Ruth McCario and I am super excited to be teaching 6th grade Special Education this year. I have taught junior high and high school special education, and have also been a special education administrator. I am thrilled to be back in the classroom and touch young minds. 

My husband, Steve, and I own a farm south of Hillsboro. We row crop farm corn, beans, and wheat, and also have some cattle. Together, we have three children, Peyton (7th grade at HJHS), Lily (5th grade at Pawnee Grade School), and Paxton (2nd grade at Beckemeyer). We love to make time for family fun, whether it is exploring the outdoors or having a family movie night. Personally, my faith is very important to me and we are active members at Hillsboro Free Methodist Church. I also enjoy lifting weights and running. 

I am ready to have a great year!
