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: druiz4@neisd.net.

Thank you for all your support. I am looking forward to an exciting year with your children!
