Dr. Michele Ramsay excitedly joined the CIP Brevard family in June of 2015 and hit the ground running.
Dr. Ramsay received her Bachelor’s degree in teaching from Georgian Court University, Master’s degree in Education Administration from Kean University, and her Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Teaching from Walden University. Dr. Ramsay has 18 years of experience in school district management. In New Jersey she worked as an enthusiastic Special Needs Teacher, High School Assistant Principal, and a School District Director of Special Education. After all that time, her excitement continues to grow as she relocates to beautiful sunny Florida to begin her career as the Program Director of CIP Brevard. As the Educational Leader in her last position, she supervised a staff of 88 professionals including child study team members, classroom teachers, and paraprofessionals; with a special needs population of over 350 students. She worked on curriculum changes that facilitated transition, and holds a strong commitment to strengthening students’ educational experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. She looks forward to continuing the CIP reputation of excellence that was created by its dedicated and talented staff of professionals.
Outside of working at CIP, Dr. Ramsay resides with her husband, ten-year-old son, and two dogs, a boxer and a labrador retriever, in Melbourne. Her downtime consists of watching her son in his various activities, spending time at the gym, volunteering in the community, and enjoying the beautiful surroundings that the Brevard community has to offer. As Dr. Ramsay continues her path to lifelong learning through educational research, her interests include online instruction, technology integration, adult learning, student achievement, bridging achievement gaps, and school/community relations.
