Ms. Sylma Ruiz



I am a History Special Education teacher at Woodlake Hills Middle School. I studied at the University of Puerto Rico where I earned a Master's degree in Psychology, with a focus on Education. I taught Psychology 101 to University students and was an assistant in the Physiological Psychology lab. 

I love Woodlake Hills and I have been teaching here for 12 years. I taught Applied Science 6-8.  An adviser and photographer for the Yearbook for 5 years.  In 2018, I was honored to receive the "Spirit of Judson” award! I look forward to helping your child develop a long-lasting love for History.

We will have a wonderful year!!!
