Ruth Ann Vessels

I was born and raised in Perryton, Texas and graduated from Perryton High School in 1981. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Panhandle State University in 1986 and a Masters of Education from West Texas A & M University in 2004. I have 29 years experience in education. Prior to joining Hereford ISD I coached and taught at Frenship and Dumas. I am starting my 13th year in Hereford.  I was the Associate Principal at Hereford High School for 8 years and then moved to Hereford Junior High. I was named Director of Curriculum & Learning in the Fall of 2015. I currently oversee the Bilingual/ESL program, Gifted & Talented, Title III, Homebound services, and Credit by Exam. I also serve on the Hereford ISD Curriculum Team.
I am married to Tim Vessels and we have two children. Our daughter, Jordan is Director of Basketball Operations at the University of Texas at Arlington and our son, Jace lives in Durango, Colorado where he is an avid snow-boarder, hiker, and outdoor enthusiast. My hobbies include watching sports, reading, "picking" antiques, and attending auctions.
