Ruidoso Middle School (RMS) Messages to Students & Parents

August 1, 2017

Greetings Parents and Families of Ruidoso Middle School (RMS):

My name is Cecily Hooker and I’m extremely happy to join the staff of RMS as the new Principal. I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality middle school experience. I consider RMS the perfect place to do the most important work in the world, educate our children!

Over the past 18 years, I served in a variety of teaching and educational leadership roles. I earned my master’s degree in Education from Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, NM. I am a strong instructional leader through my work in curriculum development, professional learning communities (PLCs), and my educational background in pedagogy and learning. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to RMS and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

I believe that great schools are the results of great teachers, so my primary objective will be to ensure that every student is receiving high-quality instruction from every teacher at RMS. In order to do this, I will be providing teachers with feedback on their instruction, access to professional development, and reaching out to parents for support with academic and behavioral concerns to ensure our students are prepared for college and 21st century careers.

All of us at RMS are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever! This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors is excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email myself or Mr. Speck at school, to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.

I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at RMS meet their goals and have a successful school year!

In partnership,

Cecily Hooker
