Mrs. Ruechel (or as the students know her, Roxie) received her Bachelor's of Science degree in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, with a minor in mathematics. She worked for Davy Engineering and Laboratory (LaCrosse), Donahue and Associates (Sheboygan), and Lakeshore Technical College before coming to ELGHS.
Mrs. Ruechel is an obsessed UW-Badger football fan and season ticket holder, and has attended 10 Bowl games, including 3 Rose Bowls in Pasadena. Roxie will always be devoted to the University of Wisconsin Marching Band, as both her son and daughter were members of the band. The Ruechel's have hosted many a UW-Badger Band members for the annual Elkhart Lake Fireman's Picnic over the 4th of July weekend.
In her spare time, Roxie likes to go camping with her family, going hiking in the woods, and to putz in her very small garden. She is very active with her church, as a member of the church council and a long time member of the choir.
