Ms. Ruiz
         Welcome!  My name is Katherine Ruiz (formerly Patino). This is my ninth year as an EL teacher at Evergreen Mill.  I received a Bachelor's of Art Degree from the University of Maryland and a Masters of  Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University.
         I am looking forward to supporting Kindergarten through 2nd grade students this 2019-2020 school year.  Students who are learning English will receive support in  listening, speaking, reading, and writing of English in their classrooms. I will work closely with classroom teachers to ensure that each student has the best possible learning experience.
         I believe a close relationship with parents is very important. If you have any questions please call the school or email me anytime. This is going to be a fantastic year!
