Assistant Principals

Ms. Patterson


I feel honored and privileged to continue being a part of the Ruth Musser community, serving as an assistant principal going into my third year.  As an assistant principal, the education and safety of all students and staff is an utmost priority.  It is my goal to make every person on Ruth Musser Middle School’s campus feels welcome, comfortable, and safe.  I believe that home-school collaboration is an important step in supporting a child’s positive engagement in learning, and acclimation to the school environment and social aspects of school life. Also as a team, we can foster support that focuses on the whole child and create continuous open lines of communication. Know that I am invested in the success of your child and am excited for what this new year brings. Thank you in advance for your dedication and support.  Feel free to contact me anytime.

Every day is a great day to be a BULLDOG!

Ms. Espinoza


I am excited about joining the Bulldog family this school year.  This is my first year in this capacity, but my 20th year with Central School District.  At Ruth Musser Middle School, our students are properly prepared to be 21st Century thinkers using critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication to develop their decision-making and problem-solving skills.  The teachers and administrative team hold the highest standards for all students at Ruth Musser Middle School.  High expectations for student respect, responsibility, and integrity help create a positive learning environment where all students feel enthusiastic about their school experiences.  It is our goal that each child will reach their greatest potential both academically and behaviorally, along with becoming positive leaders.  As a member of your school community, I am excited to support each family in preparing our students at Ruth Musser Middle for success.  I look forward to an outstanding year of watching your children flourish.  Thank you for your continued support.  Feel free to contact me anytime.
