Teachers of the year announced 

The 2013-14 Suwannee County School District teachers of the year have been announced. A brief about each one is highlighted. 

Branford Elementary School

Lindsey Ramsey

The teacher of the year for Branford Elementary School is fourth grade teacher Lindsey Ramsey. She has been teaching fourth grade at BES since 2007 and holds a bachelor’s degree in education.

“My greatest contribution as an educator is I believe every child can learn. This fuels my teaching as an educator. I am constantly changing and adapting teaching strategies in order to make my students be and feel successful,” Ramsey said. “Success is not measured by a mere number. Success as a teacher is measured by the day-to-day things. I get excited when my students tell me something new they learned or mastered at home as well. Success is not just in the classroom, it occurs everywhere. Taking an AR test and passing it when you are a struggling student and hate to read, completing an AM assignment on your own are examples of things I get excited about in my class. Everyone doesn’t learn the same way, that’s my job to figure out the best way my students learn, then present it to them so they can be successful every day not just on test taking days.”
