Mr. Ruiz

I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I studied at Cupey Maria Montessori School.  After graduating from High School, I decided to attend the University of Puerto Rico - Rio-Piedras Campus.  At UPR, I studied Sociology.  After graduating in 2009 I moved to Texas where I received my teaching certification.  My first teaching experience was with Fort Worth ISD, I also worked with Garland ISD before arriving here at Hickey Elementary in Plano.  Of all my years of teaching being part of Hickey has been the best.  When I am not teaching, I like to play basketball or enjoy time with family and friends.  My favorite pastimes are playing basketball, playing video games online and reading but nothing beats taking long walks with my daughter Zaira.  At the end of the school day I am blessed to go home to be with her, with my stepson Kyler and with my amazing wife Maiara.
