Welcome to Huffman Middle School! I am excited to serve as the new principal of HMS for the 2019-2020 school year. Before becoming the HMS principal, I worked in a different school district for over ten years, taught at HMS for four years, and most recently served as an assistant principal at Huffman Elementary. Even though this is my twentieth year in education, I am still as excited about education and teaching as I was on the first day I walked into a classroom 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 nine 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 freshman at HHS, and my son is in fifth grade at HES. I love Huffman ISD and the Huffman community!
As a parent, I utilize two 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 Tyler to receive your child's attendance and grade information daily, I encourage you to do so by going to the Tyler link. I also encourage you to register for My School Bucks so that you can be notified via email when your child incurs any fees at school.
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!
Dr. Marybel Ruiz
