Counselor Ruth Caldwell


My name is Ruth Caldwell and it is my pleasure to be serving students at the Chavez Excel Academy.   I have been serving Northside students since August of 1996.  I have been a teacher, counselor and head counselor in Northside.  It is my privilege to continue serving students now at Excel! 

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics with a minor in Spanish at Our Lady of the Lake University in December of 1993.  I received my Masters in Counseling at the University of Texas at San Antonio in May of 2000. I have enjoyed and continue enjoying counseling and working with students and families to meet the goal of graduation from high school!

I am the proud parent of two boys- Matthew and Michael!  They are my pride and joy and I learn something new from them every day.  Working with students has taught me how to be a better parent, teacher and counselor so I thank our hard working parents that are raising great students in Northside.
