Jennifer Ramos

Dr. Jennifer Ramos has been a high school English and AVID teacher in Elk Grove Unified School District since 2004. It was in her third year of teaching that Jenn realized just how important building positive relationships in the classroom is to student achievement. She completed a Doctorate in Organizational Leadership from Brandman University and wrote her dissertation on the strategies AVID teachers use to build positive teacher-student relationships. When she was approached to teach the Get Focused...Stay Focused!® program at her school site, she jumped at the opportunity because she felt that it would help to improve the school’s freshman transition initiative by helping students feel connected to school and, ultimately, their future.
