Gravity Alert! Mr. Woodruff is a well-known teacher here at Stacey Middle School. He is very devoted to teaching and spreading his love of music. This is his seventh year teaching at Stacey and is very excited for much more to come.
Mr. Woodruff first decided to be a teacher when he was in the fifth grade. “I find it fun to share what I truly love,” says Mr. Woodruff. “Enjoy what you are doing at the moment. Just let the future develop on its own.”
Playing over ten different instruments, his favorite by far is the guitar.
