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 taught in San Antonio for one year and in Comal ISD at Spring Branch Middle School for five years as a Special Education teacher.  This is my 7th year of teaching. I am honored to be back at NEISD and teaching at Bush Middle School.

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:

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