Subjects Taught
6th Grade Math


Hi!  I'm Shirley Ramsay.  I teach 6th grade math.  This is my 26th  year to teach and my 10th year at LMS.  I have been married for 29 years to the world's sweetest husband. We have two daughters.  Our youngest is a freshman at the University of Memphis, and our oldest is a first year teacher in Collierville, TN.  We share our home in Memphis with 2 spoiled cats, Addie, who does not have a tail, and our newest fur child, Chloe Belle, who is full of boundless energy.  Our family loves cooking, playing, reading,  and hanging out together. We attend First Congregational United Church of Christ in Memphis. 

I graduated cum laude from Mississippi State University in May, 1990. (Go 'Dawgs!!!!) I have been fortunate to teach in New Albany, MS; Navasota, TX; Horn Lake, MS; and Lewisburg, MS. One of my proudest professional moments was being named the DeSoto County 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year. I have a passion for my students and for teaching.  My goal is to teach another 25 years!  I've been blessed to work with incredible students and amazing teachers throughout my career.  I am looking forward to many more years teaching the best students in the world!
