Hello my name is Mr. Ruben Gutierrez I am the 6-7th Grade Avid Teacher here at Heritage Middle School. I have been a teacher for a year and this will be my 2nd year of teaching. I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Arts in History with a Social Studies concentration and I am certified to teach 7-12 Social Studies in the great state of Texas! I am a passionate and dedicated educator who will always strive to provide his students with a quality education. I believe in encouraging students to reach their highest potential by emphasizing the importance of, what I call, "Mr. G's Core 5" which are: Reading, Writing, Thinking, Speaking and Listening. Furthermore, a foundational pillar of my teaching philosophy is the understanding that students won't care how much you know until they know how much you care!
