What's Happening at Ramirez
February 21, 2021 Edition
Happy Sunday Ramirez Families!
Today's edition is dedicated to our outgoing and incoming principals. Change is not always easy, however, I am of the belief that our attitude towards change influences the outcome. Let's celebrate and bless these leaders as one moves into a new role and another takes the helm at Ramirez.
Have a wonderful week!
Dr. Seheult, Farewell and All the Best!
The Ramirez Staff bids a bittersweet farewell to the principal of six years, Dr. Kimberly Seheult. Dr. Seheult has been selected as the Director of the Eastvale STEM academy. We celebrate this honor with her! During her six year tenure at Ramirez, her focus has been on supporting teachers and staff in creating an environment where "learning is the only option" for students. Join us in sending her off with light and love as she moves on to do great things at Eastvale STEM academy! Dr. Seheult you will be dearly missed!
Welcome Principal Mrs. Jennifer Montgomery!
Dear Wolfpack Students and Families,
I am excited to write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Dr. Augustine Ramirez Intermediate School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with outstanding students, dedicated staff, and a supportive school community while continuing to strengthen our Wolf Pack with their academic and social-emotional learning. Dr. Seheult and I are working together to create a smooth transition for our students, families, and staff.
I have been dedicated to the field of education for twenty-eight
years. I have worked with students ranging from Kindergarten to high school in
a variety of roles. I have been a teacher, counselor, and most recently an
Assistant Principal at Eleanor Roosevelt High School for the past eight
years. I am pleased to bring my skills as an educational leader to Ramirez
and continue my work in the Eastvale community as a partner in education to
ensure your student’s success.
On a personal note, my husband, Randy, and I have been married for
24 years, and we are contented, empty nesters. Our youngest son is a
senior at the University of Portland (a school that proudly wears purple and
black) and plays for the Pilot’s baseball team. I am an avid Peloton rider,
podcast listener, reader, and lifelong learner.
I view education as a life-long process and expect that I will
continue to learn much about Ramirez's uniqueness for the rest of the school year
and in the years to come. Most importantly, I am steadfast in my belief
that all students can learn through motivation, education, and empowering
students to be their best selves. I firmly believe the relationships between
families and the school are vital to learning outcomes.
I look forward to meeting and collaborating with you to ensure success for the entire student body.
Mrs. Jennifer Montgomery
