About Monica Ruiz

I am originally from Maryland and earned a B.S. in Microbiology from the University of Maryland, College Park.  I worked in several different immunology labs at the Food and Drug Administration, National Institutes of Health, and the University of California, San Diego, prior to earning my M.S. in Secondary Education from Old Dominion University.


I have been working for WCPSS in various teaching capacities since 2017. I have worked as a sub, Instructional Assistant, middle school math and science teacher, high school teacher of Earth & Environmental Science and Biology, Cross-Categorical Kindergarten teacher, and recently a Virtual Academy 5th grade teacher.  Having worked in these various positions and at different schools throughout Wake County has led me to have a unique perspective.
