Where I Lead: Jim Ramirez-Ruiz

Thu Jun 16, 2022
Jim Ramirez-Ruiz, who is pursuing a degree in middle grades education with concentrations in mathematics and social studies, is part of the Aspiring Teachers Program (ATP). Much of his motivation for teaching came from how his first- and second-grade teacher's care and concern for him made Ramirez-Ruiz feel good about himself. Seeking to emulate that approach, he understands his role is not so much about classroom management as it is about forming bonds.
