Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Rudina Mathews


My name is Ms.Mathews and this is my first year teaching Prek @ Rondo. I have been teaching Pre-K for the district over 10 years. I was born in Chicago. I was raised in South Minneapolis and attended private schools.  I graduated from Concordia University St.Paul. I have taken continuing education courses at Hamline University.

I have a son that is 24 and a daughter who is 27. 


I focus on creating a positive and safe learning environment for students and families. I enjoy learning about different cultures and incorporating them into the classroom. I am always looking for family volunteers for many things like reading stories. Also using artistic expression through music, arts and crafts, or movement. I do believe that you are your child's first teacher. I look for ways to support  families whether it be providing resources, academic support, or social emotional support. Communication and bulding relationships are important to me.


I enjoy bike riding, walking trails, different kinds of foods, meditating, Zumba, and spa day!
