Hello! I'm Amy Ransom, 5th Grade teacher! This will be my 24th year of teaching and I am looking forward to growing as a teacher and watching your child grow and learn throughout the year. I've lived in Fredericksburg since 1998 and have taught in Stafford and Spotsylvania County Schools. My experience is mostly in either the Elementary Classrooms or in the Elementary or High School Libraries as a Media Specialist. I am originally from Northwestern Pennsylvania (GO STEELERS, PENGUINS and PIRATES) and spent the majority of my childhood on the water. I took most of my naps under the bow of the boat and still love being on or near the water. My two boys, Parker and Braden also love the outdoors and we spend time together camping, fishing and swimming at Alum Springs or Lake Anna. In my spare time, I love watching sports, especially college football and being crafty with sewing projects and scrapbooking. Cooking is also a passion and I have pinned WAY too many recipes on Pinterest! I am really looking forward to seeing all of you!
