Hi, my name is Anna Rudenko and I am thrilled to be teaching music here again this year at Rocklin Academy Gateway.
I started teaching choir 10 years ago at my church, and it has always been one of the most enjoyable and rewarding things for me. I got my Bachelor’s in Music Education followed by a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Music from California State University, Sacramento.
I was born and raised in the Sacramento area by parents who emigrated to the U.S. from Ukraine and am the 7th of 13 kids! In January 2019, I got married and went from Lyubezhanina to Rudenko (even though some students continue to hold onto my old last name.) My husband and I live in Roseville, where we love to spend time with our huge family. We enjoy hiking, biking, camping, and traveling.
