Mrs. Ruiz

Hello fabulous first graders and their parents! My name is Mrs. Ruiz and I am so excited to be your first grade teacher! This is my first year teaching at North Bay, but my 13th year as an educator. I am thrilled return to the Indian Nation as an educator after graduating from Biloxi High School in 2003. 

I received a BS in Elementary Education from The University of Southern Mississippi in 2007. After completing my undergraduate degree, I continued my passion for education by enrolling in graduate school.  In 2011,  I received Master of Education from William Carey University. 

When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling with my husband and son, being a baseball mom, all things Disney, and reading. 

I am looking forward to a fun filled year full of learning, love and laughter.
