Growing A Healthy Mind, Body and Spirit in 4th Grade

Welcome to our blog where we will be growing healthy mindsets with Mrs. Ramsey in Room 14.  I am looking forward to a fabulous 4th grade year!  Finally, thank you to all of my previous fourth graders for persevering and making me proud to be your teacher!  I hope you all had a wonderful summer making memories with your family and friends.

 I would like to tell you a little bit about me.  I have been teaching elementary school in Henrico County Public Schools since 1988.  I am a product of HCPS and graduated from the University of Richmond with an undergraduate in Early Childhood and then went on to earn a Masters in Administration/Supervision from VCU.  I have taught mostly fourth grade, but do have experience in K – 4th grades throughout my years.  I have been married to Jay Ramsey for over 23+ years, and we have 2 amazing daughters.  Mary Brooke graduated from Deep Run High School and is now a Senior at James Madison University.  She is very involved in her ADPi Sorority, International Health Institute and the Young Life organization.  Mary Brooke is also busy applying for Medical Nursing School (MCV, Boston, ….).  Our other daughter, Darden, is a Senior at Deep Run High School.  She has kept us very busy with DRHS JV Lacrosse, Young Life, and other activities, as well.  Darden is busy applying for college at this time (UT, VT, JMU….).  Yes, 2 SENIORS!!!!  Please understand that I am a busy Mother, Wife and Teacher.   I treat your child in the same manner as which I treat my own daughters, with love and respect!  I am looking forward to growing with your child this year!  It’s going to be AWESOME!

 In case you haven’t already heard, we have a treadmill, 2 stationary bikes, 3 pedal bikes, and stability seats in our classroom which help us exercise our brain and our body.  Check out my “Read and Ride” program at this link to see how we will be staying FIT!
