Ruby Choudhury filled the role of a long-term substitute teacher at Baylor beginning in January 2020. She joined the full-time faculty in August 2020 to teach world history II and AP world history. Choudhury completed her undergraduate degree in history and classics at Bucknell University and earned a master’s in British history at the University of Chicago. Before coming to Baylor, Choudhury was an adjunct faculty member at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga since 2012.
Choudhury grew up in England as a first-generation immigrant. Her early education began in a Church of England preparatory school, and she competed her high school education in England at a school that used more of an American model of learning.
A lover of birds, Choudhury has two children, Christopher and Stephanie, who have long since flown the coop, but she does currently have a full house with 3 cockatiels, 3 cockatoos, and a husband, James, who is a professor at UTC.
