Ruth Erickson was born in Thailand and grew up in southeast Asia attending boarding schools. After graduating from college in the USA and getting her teaching certification, she worked for 6 years as a first grade teacher in Anaheim, California. In 1996, she came "home" to Thailand to teach first grade at CMIS. Then she transitioned into the library in 1998 and has been the Librarian at CMIS ever since. Because fitness and nutrition have been lifelong hobbies of hers, she has collected various certifications relating to this and also serves as the strength and conditioning coach at CMIS.
