5th Grade Language Arts - Rm 307

Name and Grade

Ms. Anh Ruiz • 5th Grade Language Arts

Where are you From?

Born in Viet Nam. Raised in Chicago.  

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Australia. It's been a dream of mine for as long as I could remember. It is the only place that's a country and continent at the same time. I love the culture and beautiful, exotic environment.  

What is one book that everyone must read?

Being a kid at heart, I love the Mysterious Benedict Society. There is now 3 books in the series, each with enough suspense, mystery, and twists to keep you guessing.  

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

My 3rd grade teacher, Ms. Hudak, from McCutcheon School. She was patient, understanding, and made a huge impact on my life. She was a big factor in helping me learn to speak and understand English. Every note I ever wrote to her, she wrote back. There were a lot of firsts for me during that year in her class and I was able to tell her about it. She's definitely an inspiration.  

What do you like most about Goudy?

The community and comradery atmosphere. I have a lot of fun with the staff as well as the students. It's definitely a very happy place to work. The diversity in cultures and personalities allows everyone to easily fit in.
