Michelle Ruhland

Special Education

Hi, I’m Michelle Ruhland. I live on an acreage between Barnum and Clare, Iowa with my husband Russ Ruhland. We have a son, Nick, and a daughter, Samantha, who are both graduates of MNW.


I graduated from Buena Vista University in 1990 with a management degree.  Later on I attended Buena Vista University's satellite campus in Fort Dodge, Iowa to earn an education degree along with endorsements in reading and social studies.  I then had an opportunity to fill a special education position at MNW allowing me to pursue a special education endorsement through Buena Vista University's online graduate program." 


I am a special education teacher for 5th and 6th grade.

Some of my favorites

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, crafts, sewing, reading, and golfing.
