Mrs. Shannon Ruiz

Hello 6th Grade Families!

My name is Shannon Ruiz and I am the 6th grade counselor at Farley Middle School this year!

This is my second year in Hutto ISD and at Farley Middle School. I previously worked in Round Rock ISD with 6th graders for five years, and prior to that, I worked in Louisville, KY with 7th and 8th graders. I am SO excited to be here as a counselor because mental health is one of my passions. I also really enjoy reading and writing (I'm a former language arts teacher after all), video games, dancing, and walking outside. 

My whole family is originally from Canada, but I grew up primarily in Cincinnati, OH. After graduating from the University of Dayton (Go Flyers!), I spent a year in Louisville, KY before I moved to Austin, TX to further my career in education. I currently live in Round Rock, TX with my husband and my precious fur baby (a Havanese named Sawyer).
