• Mr R

    Hello Twinhill Tornadoes!

    I am so excited to continue at Twinhill Elementary School as your School Counselor this year!  I look forward to working with all of our students, parents and staff to help each and everyone of our Tornadoes fulfill the Alvord promise: All students will realize their unlimited potential.

    My name is Jose Ruiz, and I have been a School Counselor for 4 years now. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology, Masters in Guidance and Counseling, and PPS Credential from California State University San Bernardino. I am also a graduate from Alvord Unified School District, Go Braves! 

    This page provides you with information about the School Counseling Program and resources you may find helpful.  I believe a partnership with the parents is of the utmost importance to help our students achieve their goals and achieve success.  For this reason, I encourage you to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.  I’d love to hear from you.
