Leah Ramsey Profile

Leah Ramsey joined Tam this year as a Spanish 1/2 and AP Spanish Language teacher. Ramsey, who grew up in Southern California, has taught in San Francisco for eight years prior to teaching at Tam.

Inspired to teach in the general sense by her middle school English teacher, Ramsey didn’t consider teaching Spanish until college. “I wanted to be a lit major. Once we started reading stories in Spanish class, I thought, ‘well, I’m going to study Spanish and still read literature, but learn another language as well,’” Ramsey said. That idea turned into the reality of teaching Spanish full time.

Ramsey is eager to teach at Tam. “It’s lovely over here, it’s really nice, and I knew that I was ready for a change, ready for something new,” she said. “My number one priority right now is just getting to know my students…I’m already really impressed by the students that I’ve met. I think the students here are so bright, and just really wonderful to work with, so I’m just really looking forward to the rest of the school year.”
