Ruth Vizcarrondo
Head Teacher

My name is Ruth Vizcarrondo. I am a Head Teacher for LULAC Head Start at MRC.I have worked in early childhood for the past sixteen years in a variety of capacities. As a Head Teacher working with children through age 3, I teach basic social skills focusing on play-centered learning and creativity, rather than intense curricular standards. While the activities vary, my focus is primarily on teaching children to share, express themselves, communicate, collaborate well with others, follow their curiosity, and further their language and vocabulary development. As a Head Teacher, I supervise, educate, and inspire children every day. I am continuing my education to stay on top of current best practices and pursue being an effective, qualified infant and toddler teacher. In my time off from work I enjoyed spending time with my family. As a family we enjoy family night and family vacation.

“The most important thing in the world is family and love.”
