Mrs. Ruth A Cortinas

Hello everyone!!  My name is Ruth A Cortinas and it is wonderful to have the pleasure of being your 6th grade Science Teacher!!  We are going to have a FANTASTIC year despite all of the craziness!!


To give you the 411 on myself… I absolutely love teaching!  This will be my 6th year teaching here at Woodlake Hills Middle School.  I have also taught Math so please feel free to come to my science tutoring for Math tutoring as well!  I am happily married and have a daughter and a son.  My daughter is in 8th grade and my son is in 7th grade this year.  In addition, I have 2 canine “children” as well – one miniature Schnauzer named Olivia and one golden Labrador named Penny.  I had the privilege of earning my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Phoenix while I stayed home with my children when they were babies to raise them.  I am certified to teach both Math and Science 4th through 8th grade.

If you get to know me you will discover that I am rather loud and animated and love being silly (at the right times of course!).  I will always encourage your child(ren) to talk about what they feel, think outside of the box, and be brave!  I love flourishing their personalities and hope to achieve one of my personal goals which is to give your child an AWESOME 6th grade Science class experience!
