My name is Elizabeth Ruiz and I grew up in Southern California but have moved around quite a bit in my adult life. I have lived in Arizona for five years now and love the sunshine and being able to get outside most of the year. I have been married for 15 years to my wonderful husband and we have 3 children together. Our son graduated from Chandler High in 2018 and is continuing his education at MCC before transferring to ASU. My daughters are both at Higley High.

This is my third year with the Higley School District. I have been in the educational field for 7 years, first in Washington State where my family lived most recently and then in the Chandler School District for two years before making the switch to Higley.

I know that a lot of students think that math is irrelevant to them or too difficult to understand. I believe that it is my duty to reinforce that math is exciting, relevant and fun for students. It is ok if students do not understand a concept the first time as long as they keep working to understand. This is an important concept for students to understand not only for mathematics, but for all aspects of their educational career and into adulthood!
