Ms. Ruiz, Brianna


My name is Brianna Ruiz and I am the Resource Teacher at Shields Elementary. This is my first year teaching but my fifth year in special education in the district. Before graduating I was paraprofessional in the TLC classroom at the high school. I graduated from the University of North Texas at Dallas with my degree in Psychology in December 2019. 

I look forward in working in collaboration with you and your child this year! Please don't hesitate to contact me at or (972) 617-4799 ext. 5054. My conference period time will be updated after the first week of school.
