My name is Solangie Ramirez. I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic, a small country in the Caribbean. I migrated to The United States at the age of 17. I am a proud of mother of a 12 year old girl and a 4 year old boy. I have been an educator in Union City for 16 years and have had the pleasure of teaching at Jefferson School all that time! I taught kindergarten for 4 years and have been teaching second grade for 12 years now. I absolutely love second grade! It is in second grade that children begin to foster independence and start taking risks on their learning. I pursued a teaching career because I wanted to make a difference. Being able to shape children’s minds to achieve their best is a very rewarding experience. I am a firm believer in the saying: “It takes a village to raise a child” Educating our children can only be achieved by a strong partnership between the student, the school and the home. I am excited to work along with you to provide our children with the best educational experience. Together we can do wonders!
