Miami-Dade County Teacher of the Year Marshall Ruffo from Centennial Middle School was my son’s science teacher in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades.
He is such a dedicated teacher who taught a different class just about every period, which meant he had different lesson plans and tests for each class.
As the Jan. 31 story, Science teacher wins Dade honor, mentioned, he also planned many out-of-school activities and learning experiences for the students. He coached the swim team and was one of the students’ favorite teachers.
It is a well-deserved honor for him.
Thanks Mr. Ruffo, for your love of the students and science, and congratulations!
