My name is Ruben Ramirez. I’m a native New Yorker living in Woodside Queens. I'm a NYS certified Special Education professional with a dual masters in General and Special Education from Touro College. I also received an undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from St. Johns University.
I'm also a certified NYC Public School Athletic League high school baseball official/umpire, and little league umpire during the summer and fall. I enjoy learning and teaching youngsters sportsmanship, and the rules of baseball. Previously, I've worked in a corporate environment as an IT professional for ten years. I'm currently, one year, a NYC substitute teacher looking to expand my teaching career.
There are a few reasons for my inspiration to teach. Spending my summer months working as a little league umpire, and teaching my young nieces about computers sparked my interest to pursue teaching. I also aspire to be a role model for children like my dad who is a retired NYC Board of Education school teacher.
I'm also a strong advocate for health and exercise. I've worked at after school centers in the city as an assistant alongside media arts consultants, P.E teachers, and nutritionists. I participated in one after school program at Brooklyn's Saleem Church called Health at all Ages. The program was designed to help teach and promote health and nutrition awareness to children aged 6-12, and the community.
I care to share my technical and educational background along with life experiences to create fun, interesting, and safe learning environments for children. I look forward to expanding my teaching experience. I anticipate the memorable learning experiences I’ll continue to share with students and the many more to follow.
