Teacher of the Year

I'm A Mighty Lynx and I Roar So Loud...
I am honored to represent our campus as the 2023-2024 Ramirez Teacher of the Year. It is with great admiration and respect to all Ramirez educators, supportive administration, teachers, para-professionals, custodians, and cafeteria staff who come to school every day ready to serve our students, your dedication does not go unnoticed. We make a difference and I feel PROUD to be a part of a team that works together for ALL STUDENTS.
Once someone asked why I became a teacher and I responded because I CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE EVERYDAY. I have a very important job to INSPIRE a love of knowledge that lasts a lifetime. Teaching is not always easy, but it certainly has been WORTH IT. It is who I am. It is my passion, my calling and my world. I LOVE WHAT I DO!
The moment a student steps into my classroom, they become a part of my heart. They are bright, shiny stars that transform the classroom into a place that is fun to learn in, that making mistakes are okay because they are part of growing, and giving your best effort with an I CAN attitude.
I would like to thank my mother for always being my biggest support and listening to me talk about my day in the life of a teacher. To my husband and my three children, thank you for understanding my love for teaching and the countless hours it takes outside of the classroom to be an educator.  To my 1st grade team thank you for your cooperation and always being flexible to make things work for all of us.
Thank you to all my students for being a part of my journey.
