Educating the Whole Child.

Mountain Mahogany Tree Classroom


In Kindergarten at Greenwood Charter School we focus on educating the whole child through centers, play, and hands on learning. For Math and Reading we follow the Utah Common Core State Standards. We use Illustrative Math, Utah State SEEd Stories, and the Reading Horizons Curriculum. We also use the EL curriculum in Kindergarten where we focus on Toys and Play, Weather, and Trees. We practice mindfulness, movement breaks, and social emotional building. Kindergarten is a great place to be!

a little about me

Greetings!! My name is Mayra Ruiz.  I have been in the classroom for many years!  I have been fortunate to work with students of all grades and ages. My favorite has always been the younger grades.  Littles have this contagious energy that brightens my day.  I have had extensive training in early childhood education as well as SPED within the six districts I have worked for stateside and DODEA (Department of Defense Education Activity) while living overseas in Japan.  My husband served in the US Air Force for 26 years and recently retired. We made Utah our home after many years of moving.  We have three sons. One is studying engineering at the University of Alabama, and one is in High School. Our youngest is here at Greenwood.

Setting a strong foundation for your child’s student career is very important to me. Through dedication, perseverance, and fun learning, we will have a wonderful school year!! I look forward to meeting your children and watching them blossom and grow during their Kindergarten year!!

I love all aspects of teaching and look forward to a wonderful year with our Kindergartners!!

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
