CY Middle School Educator Shannon Ruiz, Recognized for Professional Excellence!

CYMS Principal Randall Bower shared his admiration and appreciation for the lessons Ruiz inspires in his students and colleagues, “He is an advocate for World Languages learning, an avid volunteer for leadership and school improvement positions, as well as being a high-quality instructor that constantly looks to improve his craft. I find myself loving to be around people who challenge me to grow and that I learn from. As I have told Shannon before, every time I am in his classroom or have a conversation with him, I learn.”

In addition to this esteemed statewide honor, Señor Ruiz has been nominated for the Pacific Northwest Council of Language Teacher of the Year 2024.

Congratulations, Señor Ruiz, on this recognition of your commitment to educational excellence and the brilliant work you do each day!
