     This year Ramsey Junior High welcomes a new 7th & 8th grade teacher, Sarah Tomlin. Ms. Tomlin was born and raised in Booneville, Arkansas with her two sisters. Tomlin attended the University of Arkansas Fort Smith, and has her Bachelors of Science with Secondary English Teacher Licensure. Although Tomlin considered being a nurse for a while, her AP Literature teacher inspired her to go into education.

    Teaching seventh and eighth grade at Ramsey is Tomlin’s first job out of college. One of the biggest challenges she faces is,

    “figuring out how to incorporate technology into my lessons in a meaningful way and also monitoring my students to make sure that they are on task because I know that games and videos are distracting.”

    In her free time, she enjoys reading, spending time with her family, cooking and drawing.
