Elementary Teacher and Speech Pathologist
Nominator"Jill is both a teacher and a mentor. I have observed how she moves from student to student to provide for each one's specific needs and to maintain a consistent learning sequence. Jill approaches the day-to-day task of teaching with joy and dedication. She is an inspiration, not only to her students and colleagues but to all of us who know her.
On behalf of the entire deaf community, I would like to say that Ms. Ramsey is more than just a teacher. She is a friend who will be cherished by the deaf community forever."
