Hi! I am Mrs. Ramsland, and here is just a little bit about me...
I have been here at AUGS for 14 years. This is my fifth year teaching health and PE (before that I taught 8th grade science, 7th grade science, Mad Science and Info Quest). I enjoy teaching here at AUGS because everyday is a new experience. I am super excited to be teaching 6th grade health and PE!! It is my hope that students leave AUGS with a desire to live well and make good choices that will benefit them for the rest of their lives!!
I grew up in Champaign, IL. and attended the University of Illinois as an undergraduate studying exercise science and kinesiology. I continued my education at Eastern Illinois University and earned my Master's Degree in Exercise Physiology. Prior to getting my second Master's in Teaching and becoming a science teacher I worked in cardiac rehabilitation at a hospital helping heart and lung patients.
I have 2 awesome children of my own, that love sports, exercise and eating healthy. My son, Jack is a senior in college this year at Winona State University in Minnesota. He is majoring in Public Health and minoring in Nutrition. My daughter Julia is a year younger. She was in a very serious car accident her senior year on her way home from cheer and tumbling practice (on 1/18/2016). She continues her miraculous recovery and is nothing short of a miracle. If you are curious, you may look on caringbridge.org and search for Julia Page Ramsland. We have been documenting her progress on this site. We live in Richmond, IL. and have super cute dog named Cooper that is the world's largest Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
I coached Power tumbling and trampoline year-round at FireHouse Gym, but have taken a permanent "leave of absence" from that because of my daughter's new schedule. At AUGS, I am coaching girls softball, 8th grade girl's basketball, Science Olympiad and Track and Field. I enjoy being outdoors, biking, hiking, gardening, camping, skiing, walking, walking my dog, jogging, sand volleyball and I am a certified scuba diver.
As you can see I have a very colorful personality! I really hope that you have fun and learn a lot in this year!!
