Mrs. Ruszkowski, 5A

Initially, I received a B.S. from Northern Illinois University in Dietetics and Food Science.  I worked as a Registered Dietitian until my husband and I began our family.

While raising my children, I returned to school to obtain my State of Illinois Certificate in Elementary Education.  This year will be my fifteenth year teaching 5th grade at St. Thomas School.When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, running, and spending time with my family and friends.


If you need to contact me with a concern or a question, please e-mail me at school or leave a voice mail and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible. Click my picture for quick email access. For anything needing immediate attention, please notify the school office and they can reach me.


I’m looking forward to working with your children this year!

Mrs. Toussaint, 5B

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. My name is Cindy Toussaint. I am married and have two children. We live in Johnsburg, IL. My son is a senior in college and is attending Quincy University to become a pilot. He is also playing baseball for Quincy this year. My daughter is a sophomore in college and is attending Judson University. She will be playing basketball for Judson, while pursuing a degree in psychology. My husband is the boys’ basketball coach for Johnsburg High School and is an accountant in Mchenry. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching my kids play sports, and husband’s basketball games.

I attended Dominican University in River Forest, IL to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Business/Political Science and North Park University to obtain my teaching certification. I am so blessed to be a part of the St. Thomas family and your child’s teacher this year. This is my 8th year at St. Thomas the Apostle School and my 6th year teaching 5th grade. I am looking forward to wonderful school year and working with you to help your child become a life-long learner.
