Ruiz, Amberly (Math: Adv. Math Concepts, Math Specialist)


This is my second year teaching at Northland Preparatory Academy – I love teaching math!  I graduated from Northern Arizona University (NAU) with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a concentration of middle school/high school Mathematics, and Spanish.  I am also currently attending graduate school to pursue a Master’s degree in Educational Technology.

I am available after school every day until 3:45 in room 809, long period Wednesdays in room 108/110 (until 2pm), and encourage the students to meet with me after school for math help, or set up a time to meet during their ILS.  I encourage students to attend Fun Math after school as it can be a great resource to receive extra help on material covered in class or improve on concepts where students might be struggling. Fun Math is every Monday (with Ridley in room 818), Tuesday (with Ridley in room 818), and Thursday (with Elsass in room 817).

For students in AMC: If students attend any Fun Math session and get the work/assignment being worked on signed by the teacher, then they will receive extra credit towards their lowest grade from that week.

Below you will find important notes pertaining to AMC: note-taking guides, lesson PowerPoints, homework, the class calendar and help in accessing the online textbook.  If a student is absent, or it is known that they will be absent, please refer to the calendar so the student can catch up on the missed material.

Please send your student to class with a calculator.  Material covered in class works best and far quicker when each student is prepared, this includes having a calculator.  Unfortunately, when a student does not have all materials necessary for class and are unprepared to learn, they might fall behind because they are unable to follow along through the lessons, which can affect them later as they complete their homework.

Please feel free to contact me via email at

Thank you,

Ms. Ruiz
