Mr. Derek Ruble

Hello, my name is Derek Ruble.  I am teaching 8th grade social studies for the Wake Forest team and I am the social studies Department Chair at Noblesville East Middle School.  I also co-sponsor an after-school civics club called We The People NEMS and the eighth grade Washington D.C. Trip.

I grew up in Greensburg, Indiana.  I decided to become a history teacher when I was a junior in high school.  I was fortunate to have teachers and coaches who gave me confidence, which had a strong influence on my development as an adult.  I wanted to give back and provide that same influence to young people today.  I have always had an interest in the development of our country and the foundations of our government so U.S. history was an easy choice of content area for me.  I attended Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana to acquire certification for becoming an educator.

After college I married my high school sweetheart.  We currently reside on the south-side of Indianapolis.  We also have two children.
 
This will begin my thirteenth year in education and my sixth year at Noblesville East Middle School.  I look forward to an engaging and purposeful 2017-2018 school year.
