Welcome to fifth grade my name is Mrs. Ruvalcaba, but you could call me Mrs. R. I am very happy to be your fifth-grade teacher. I have been with TEACH for 4 years and have been having a blast. I graduated from Cal State University of Fullerton with a bachelor's in Liberal Studies. I am currently attending Cal State University of Long Beach for my teaching credentials. I have been working in the education field for over 7 years. Some things I like to do for fun are watching horror movies, take long walks in the park, and eat food from all over the world. Can't wait to start the year and get to know every single one of my students.
