Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Annie Ruth Royal

I was born and raised in Mississippi and I am the 12th child of my parents.  We were raised as strict Christians, which I am currently an active Christian.  I am married with three biological daughters and three step-children.  Our youngest child is 20 and is attending Illinois State University studying to be a elementary teacher.  I live in Normal Illinois and I have lived here for 14 years.  Before moving to Normal, we lived in Danville, which I was a paraprofessionsl for 13 years.  I have wanted to be a teacher since I was three years old; however, my older sister wouldn't let me becasue she knew more.  I absolutely love children and teaching!  

I attended Danville Area Community College earning an Associate Degree in Business and Secretarial.  Later in life, I returned to Danville Area Community College to take electives to become a teacher.  I transferred to Illinois State University in 2007, for which I earned my Bachelor's Degree in K-9th-grade Education with endorsements in Middle Level Education.  In 2013, I return to school, Concordia University-Portland, to obtain my Master's Degree in Education--I earned my degree in Instructional Curriculum Specialists with a minor in History and Leadership.  

This is my second year teaching at Bloomington Junior High School.  Before teaching here, I taught at Lincoln Middle School in Peoria for nine years.  Last year, 2020-2021, I taught sixth-grade Science and Math via Zoom.  This year, 2021-2022, I am the 7B-Team's Math Teacher.  I teach an amazing group of children who are eager to learn, so thank you for trusting your child's math education to be in my hands.
