Hello First Grade Families!
My name is Holly Ruiz. I am so thrilled to be part of the BMSA team and even more delighted to be your child's first grade teacher. This will be my seventh year teaching and my second year with West Ada School District. I previously taught Pre-K for the Head Start Program, and most recently taught fifth grade for West Ada School District. Teaching is a great passion of mine. I believe education starts with student-teacher relationships. I strive to create a safe, loving, and engaging classroom community where I am able to guide and support all students in achieving their social and academic goals. I am committed to starting each day with positivity and maintaing the daily expectation that all of my students are capable of growth and greatness.
Outside of the classroom I enjoy hiking, paddleboarding, swimming, dancing, baking, thrifting, and spending time with my spouse and two adorable pups. I look forward to getting to know all of my students and their families.
Our class utilizes the Seesaw application. This is where you can find student work, newletters, photos, and stay up to date with what is going on in the classroom. If you have any questions about accessing Seesaw please email me.
