Ms. Ruggeri

I have lived in New York, Pennsylvania, moved back to New York and then moved to Florida.  While in New York, I taught in a private Special Education Preschool.  When I moved to Florida, I taught for 1 year at Dr. N. H. Jones Elementary School as a replacement teacher.  When the teacher returned, I was hired at Shady Hill Elementary School as an ESE Teacher for students with Emotional and Behavioral Disabilities.  I have been teaching for 15 years.  This will be my 14th year in my current position at Shady Hill Elementary School.  


I hold the professional certifications in Elementary K-6, ESE K-12, and PreK-Primary Education age 3-grade 3.  I hold endorsements in ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages), Reading, and PreK Disabilities.


I am a huge animal lover.  I have a Redbone/American English Coonhound-Labrador Retriever Mix.  I also love all things Disney.
