It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Ramsey Middle School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such amazing staff that will produce outstanding students.
During these past few weeks, I have had many interactions with parents, teachers and students. From these conversations, it is clear there is a collegial partnership between all stakeholders to provide the best possible academic experience for our students. I look forward to fostering these relationships and working with teachers and staff to provide a world-class educational experience for each child.
I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than fifteen years with a specific concentration in teacher leadership and school improvement. My most recent administrative experience has been shaped by three years of leadership as an Assistant Principal at Edison High School, and five years as an Instructional Leader and School Improvement Specialist, as well as eleven years of teaching. I am elated to bring my skills as an educational leader to Ramsey Middle School and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success. Along with teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Ramsey by building strong relationships with students, parents, and community partners.
All of us at Ramsey are eager and excited to continue the commitment to your student’s education. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors—teachers, students and parents—are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!
I feel truly blessed to be the instructional leader of such an awesome school community.
Erin Rathke, Principal
Ramsey Middle School
