Vote Ramona Porter for QuickSchools Teacher of the Year 2012!

April 24, 2012

Help Ramona Porter win the inaugural QuickSchools Teacher of the Year award. To all teachers out there, we salute you! QuickSchools.com is a fully-online school management system.


Ramona Porter is a Rockstar Teacher!

Ms Porter is adored by her students at Lakeside Christian Academy. This nomination came from a parent at the school who shared with us that Ms Porter is a truly wonderful teacher!

We then asked Ms Porter a few questions…

How did you get into teaching?

As a child I did not have a positive school experience until third grade. My third grade teacher was wonderful. She inspired me to become a teacher.  One of the goals that I set for myself when I became a teacher was to make school a fun and lovable environment for all the children that I would teach.

What do you hope for your students?

My hope for all of my students is to instill in them a love for learning. Each child is special and unique in their own way and I want them to know that they are special. Learning isn’t just something you do at school or the classroom but something you do for the rest of your life.

Anything you’d like to share with us? e.g. favorite moments, etc.

I have taught at a small Christian school for about 20 years. I have had the pleasure to watch children read their first words and write their own name. Each success came with struggles and a few tears as things didn’t always come easily. I want all my students to realize that they are unique and special in my eyes as well as God’s. As they grow things may come easily but some things will be a struggle but stay positive and work hard and you can achieve all your dreams!!!

    My grandaughter was fortunate enough to have been in “Miss” Romona’s class and we were all so pleased at how loving she was to all her students and how much she taught them. She is truly a great teacher.

    My son is in Mrs. Ramona’s kindergarten class. He has special needs, and she has never failed to full fill them. She has even integrated his situation into class a few times. He really loves her, and I feel she has made his kindergarten experience one that he will always hold dear. Thanks Mrs. Ramona!

    We are truly blessed to have Mrs. Ramona as our son’s teacher. She has enriched his education, and ultimately his kindergarten experience! She embraces each child’s needs as if they were her own. She attentively listens to the questions and concerns of the parents, and adds her own personal touch to her teaching.
    Rock on Mrs. Ramona !!! You deserve this:) Hayden really enjoys you!

    Please take a few minutes to vote for Mrs. Ramona as teacher of the year. She is Callen’s Kindergarten teacher, and she has been amazing! Words cannot describe what she means to him and to me. Callen sometimes needs a little extra attention and has had some hurdles to cross due to his vision, developmental delays, and ADHD. Mrs. Ramona never views Callen as being limited in what he can do, but pushes him to go above and beyond what anyone would have expected, teaching him there is no limits. He has learned that he can do anything he sets his mind to. We owe all thanks and appreciation to her and Mrs. Kim. Thank you Mrs. Ramona for loving my boy and taking such good care of him!!!

    My daughter had Ms. Ramona and she LOVED her kindergarten year!!! My child even learned so many things that year. She was in a small class and she and her aide gave the class their undivided attention and with all the amazing things they learned it really showed. It is important for kids to love school from the get go and she is an asset to our school. Wish I had teachers like her when I was in school!!!!

    I teach second grade at Lakeside Christian Academy. I have also taught first grade,so i know how important kindergarten is. With out getting a firm foundation in the basic academic subjects, getting through first and second grade is very difficult when using the A- Beka curriculum.
    When they get to me, I know that they have gotten what they need to succeed. Thanks Romona,
