All About Me

Hello everyone!!!!! Welcome to Otis Brown Elementary!!!


My name is Christine Ruiz and I was born in Crookston, Minnesota, but grew up in Irving, Texas. I have a sister and a brother, which made it really fun growing up. I am the oldest of the three. When I was five my family moved to Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico for three years and I attended school there for first, second, and part of third grade. It was a wonderful experience!!!! My family moved back to the USA when I was eight years old.


I attended Schulze Elementary, Bowie Junior High, and Nimitz High School here in Irving. Later I attended North Lake College and UTA at Arlington. My major is in EC-4 Bilingual Interdiciplinary Studies. Currently I am attending UNT in Dallas for my Masters Degree in Educational Administration/Leadership.


I am married to Jose Juan Ruiz, my soulmate. We have a pair of seven year old twin girls. Their names are Alexa and Madelene Ruiz. They are the love of my life.


In my spare time I like to bike ride, walk, kareoke, cook, go on road trips, read, organize anything and everything, and spend time with family and friends!!!
