Ruth Herrin

American International School of Guangzhou
Director of Curriculum and Learning
Guangdong, China
Ruth is a perpetual student and blue sky thinker. After first earning her BA in International Affairs, Spanish, and Economics from Marshall University she fell in love with teaching and went back for her M.Ed in Secondary Education from Vanderbilt University. She has taught Social Studies in Nashville, History in Shanghai, Social and Cultural Anthropology in Kathmandu, and Theory of Knowledge in Mexico City among other roles. While she loves working with students, she is inspired by the continual improvement and lifelong learning she sees in teachers' professional development.

Her current role is the Director of Curriculum and Learning at the American International School of Guangzhou. She finds joy in well-crafted excel sheets, vertically articulated learning outcomes and data dives into classroom assessments. Her research interests include women in leadership, professional learning communities, equity and social justice in education, school and community collaboration, and how the context of poverty affects education.
