Catherine Ruiz

Hello to all!! My name is Catherine, I was born in Jersey City, NJ and moved down to Miami with my mother when I was 5 yrs old. I have lived here ever since. I am family orientated, I love spending time with my family, I will be getting married to my fiance this October, and I'm just thrilled!!! :) I have a younger sister who just started middle school, Yes, there is a 12 year difference between her and I. My passion is to be an elementary teacher. I absolutely love children, and how innocent they are to exploring the unknown. I would strongly want to be apart of helping them discover all what life has to offer.
