|Rigoberto Ruelas Jr. was considered much more than a fifth-grade teacher at Miramonte Elementary School – he was a mentor to youth tempted to join gangs and a tireless booster that kids could make it to college.
But after a newspaper published a school district report that ranked Ruelas as a "less effective teacher" based on his students' test scores, colleagues saw him grow despondent.
On Sunday, his body was found at the foot of a remote forest bridge in what appears to be a suicide. Authorities are still investigating, but friends and colleagues suggest he was distraught over the teacher rating.
I'm me. In love with this guy. We're bringing up two girls: Big A (8) and Little A (3)
