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!!
To give you the 411 on myself… I absolutely love teaching! This will be my 8th 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 married and have a daughter and a son. My daughter is in 10th grade and my son is in 9th grade this year.
In addition, I have 2 canine “children” as well – one miniature Schnauzer named Olivia and one golden Labrador named Penney, one bearded dragon named Rhyno, 4 hermit crabs, 2 rabbits (Ceiro and Jazzy), and 2 fish named Noob and Spaz, and 2 snails named Ren and Stimpy!! 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!
