Who is Ms. Ruderman?

My name is Ms. Sarah Ruderman and I am the 7th grade School Counselor here at John Adams Middle School. I grew up in the Bay Area and was born and raised in Oakland, California. After high school, I moved to Los Angeles to attend UCLA where I earned my bachelors degrees in Sociology and Gender Studies. I also hold a Masters Degree in School Counseling (and PPS credential) from CSUN.

I am very excited to be your 7th grade school counselor! I am passionate about working with students, teachers and families to ensure all students have a positive and fulfilling educational experience. When I am not helping students, I enjoy running, cooking and listening to podcasts!
