HMS Principal

Dr. Marybel Ruiz

Welcome to Huffman Middle School!  I am excited to serve as the HMS principal for of HMS.  Even though this is my twenty-third year in education, I am still as excited about education and teaching as I was on the first day I walked into a classroom over twenty years ago.

I am proud to say that I am a Hargrave High School graduate.  Through personal experience and from working for Huffman ISD for ten years, I know what a great school district Huffman ISD is for our students.  Both of my children are current Huffman ISD students.  My daughter is a senior at HHS, and my son is in eighth grade at HMS.  I love Huffman ISD and the Huffman community! 

As a parent, I utilize three great tools available to Huffman ISD parents in order to stay informed on my children's grades, attendance, and fees.  If you have not registered for access to SKYWARD to receive your child's attendance and grade information daily, I encourage you to do so by going to the SKYWARD link at the top of the page.  I also encourage you to utilize Canvas to view your child's daily assignments and grades.  My School Bucks is another great tool to use to pay fees and add lunch money to your child's account.   

Please know that we are here to meet the needs of your child in the best way we can.  If there is anything we can do for your child, please let us know.

I am looking forward to a year full of great things for HMS students, staff, and parents. 

Thank you for your support!
