Hi! I am the Resource Specialist at McKinley School. My name is Antje Ramsay. My first name is hard to pronounce, but I will respond to all different kinds of pronunciation.
I was born and raised in Germany, went to the university there where I trained as a psychologist and worked for two years in family counseling, before my husband was transferred by IBM to San Jose,California. We found a beautiful place to live in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I still live there, fires and earthquakes did not make us leave our home.
Since California does not acknowledge degrees from out of state and other countries, I went back to school and acquired more degrees, the latest being the multiple subject teaching credential and a Master’s degree in special education. My plan was to substitute for a few years until my two kids would have been done with school, but the current director of special ed. those years ago, who was one of my professors, one day gave me a key and said, “ You have a job at Mckinley School.” Well, I took the position 1991 and still love to work with the students and staff of Mckinley School.
