Dr. Mark Ruffin

Dr. Mark Ruffin was named Superintendent of Montgomery ISD schools in December 2023.

Coming to Montgomery ISD after serving as superintendent for six years in Normangee ISD, Dr. Ruffin provides experience and valuable perspective from his roles as an educational leader in small, rural communities and larger school districts. He began his teaching career as a Math and Special Education teacher in Centerville ISD in 2009 before moving to Humble ISD as a teacher, coach, and then Assistant Principal. In 2018, Ruffin moved to Normangee ISD to serve as High School Principal before being named superintendent.

Dr. Ruffin's leadership approach is rooted in the belief that success is a collective effort. As superintendent, he is committed to fostering a collaborative environment where every team member is valued and has a role to play, no matter how big or small. His passion for students is evident in his dedication to meeting each child on their unique educational journey and guiding them toward their full potential through the transformative power of a high-quality education.

Dr. Ruffin's educational journey is a testament to his commitment to learning and growth. A division-one college baseball player at the University of Texas San Antonio, he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Education. He further honed his skills and knowledge by earning his Master's in Educational Administration from the University of Texas at Tyler and his Doctorate in Educational Leadership from West Texas A&M University. His dedication to the field of education is also reflected in his active involvement as a sitting member of the Texas Association of School Administrators Commissioner's Cabinet and a superintendent mentor for the Region 6 Education Service Center.

Mark and his wife, Bay, have three sons, Rhett, Rollie, and Riggs. He says his family represents his very best part, and he could not lead as superintendent without their continued sacrifices, support, and encouragement. Mark's faith and his family are the rock on which he stands, and he is committed to leading with integrity, a strong work ethic, and honest enthusiasm for public education in Montgomery, TX.
