Dear Kerley Community,
I am Kyle Ruggirello, and I am thrilled to be the principal at Benjamin “Doc” Kerley Elementary School. It is so exciting to open a brand new school! This is my twenty-sixth year in education, with the last twenty-one being with Hutto ISD. I started in Hutto in 1998 teaching fourth grade. After ten years in the classroom, I became a reading intervention teacher, a gifted and talented teacher, and an instructional coach. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities/Elementary Education and a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, and my Principal Certification degree from Concordia University in Austin, Texas.
In addition to being a dedicated educator, I am also devoted to my family. My husband Todd and I have been married for twenty-two years and are the lucky parents of a daughter who is eighteen and just graduated from Hutto High School, and a fourteen-year-old son.
I believe that every student has amazing potential, and it is our job to make sure they reach it, and hopefully exceed our expectations. I believe Kerley Elementary will be a campus that truly puts children first. I feel honored to be part of this growing community, and I welcome the opportunity to meet and visit with as many of our families as possible. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
