Mrs. Dorina (Dede) G. Ruiz
Welcome to my ELAR (English Language Arts and Reading) website! I was born and raised in San Antonio and I attended schools in the NEISD. After graduating from UTSA, I worked in a variety of positions in the business sector for 25 years. Raising four children inspired me to go back and get my certification in education. I started teaching in 2011 in San Antonio. I transferred to Comal ISD to be closer to the schools where my children attended. My children are now teenagers and I am returning to my roots and I am back at NEISD!
I enjoy spending my spare time with my husband and four teenagers. My hobbies include working on my yard, reading, and exercising. I also love to go to the beach as much as possible.
I have morning coaching every Monday-Thursday from 7:45 – 8:20 am. Please contact me by email for earlier or specific times that your student may need: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all your support and I am looking forward to an exciting year with your children!
