Mr. Ramsay has been teaching Pre-Kindergarten through the Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI) for several years. He earned a Master of Education at George Mason University after earning his Bachelors in Elementary Education from the University of Maine. Mr. Ramsay’s enthusiasm for Pre-K stems from the opportunity it presents. In his own words, “Pre-K is the first and greatest grade level to set children off on the best possible developmental trajectory. Successive teachers can only work from the foundation that Pre-K teachers set.” Mr. Ramsay sees schools and their staff as essential community elements and believes strongly in living where he works. He has lived in Arlington since 2000.
