Everyone’s favorite volleyball coach, bowling coach, and gym teacher here! Ms. A has been a teacher at Rutherford High School since 2003 and has been the highlight of everyone’s high school years since! I have had the privilege of playing volleyball and softball for Ms. A since freshman year. She retired as a softball coach in 2021 to pick up the bowling position and has remained the volleyball coach since she came here.

In my backyard. I find rest there.
