  • Ruth Giron-Wong is the assistant principal at Manzanita Elementary this school year. Mrs. Giron-Wong began her career in education as a college mentor for high school students. She continued her studies at Cal State Los Angeles, where she earned a BA in Psychology along with her clear teaching credential. Mrs. Giron-Wong’s first four years of teaching were at the Middle School level, teaching math. She then went on to teach high school Spanish for 10 years. She then worked with the Upward Bound program at UC Berkeley for 2 summers, teaching math. Her career continued to expand when she became the Coordinator for Early Childhood Education for the Mountain View School District in El Monte. Mrs. Giron-Wong was an assistant principal at various schools in the Lancaster school district. She was privileged to receive a call from the Palmdale school district and is grateful for having the opportunity to work in such a versatile and innovative school district. Her passion is supporting student academic growth by working together with students, teachers, and families. Our Manzanita mice have shown growth in their academic and social-emotional skills this school year due to the dedication and support they have at home and the high expectations our teachers have for them each day.
