Mrs. Dorina (Dede) G. Ruiz
I am a native San Antonian who was educated in the NEISD. I graduated from Churchill High school in ‘86. I attended college at UTSA and graduated with a Bachelors's in Interior Design. My post-college work career included time with a local architectural firm and owning a teacher supply store. My past work experience plus raising four children inspired my interest in pursuing a teaching career. My first assignment was teaching at a charter school in San Antonio. From there, I accepted an opportunity in the Comal ISD at Spring Branch Middle School where my children attended. I returned to NEISD, this time in a teaching role in 2018.
My love of art dates back to grade school trips to local museums. As a result, I remember spending time outdoors with pencil and paper trying to draw my surroundings. Upon further exploration, I uncovered the world of oil pastels, acrylic, the art of sculpting, and various other media. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share my love of art with inspiring young minds.
I will be available for morning tutoring on Tuesday and Thursday from 7:50-8:20. Please contact me by email for specific times that your student may need: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all your support. I am looking forward to an exciting year with your children!
