Hello, dear future friends,

I would like to introduce myself. I am Anne Ramirez (Mrs. Anna), and this year I am the online instructor for Ann Arbor Orthodox Classical Academy teaching K through 2nd Grade. I am eager to meet you and your child!

I live in Texas! I have lived in a few different parts of my state for a long time. Like many places in the Great Lakes region, my town has a Native American name: Waxahachie. It is close to Dallas, but it is not a suburb. I was born Anne Helene Bolger in New York, and my family moved a bit, landing me in New Mexico for high school. Then I married my husband and we settled in Texas and had two sons, who are now grown. My husband reposed in the Lord 19 years ago. I currently live with one of my sons and his family (including two grandchildren), and we own an adorable, friendly Golden Doodle dog named Nemo. (Guess who named him?)

I came to Orthodoxy because of my younger sister. We were raised in the Methodist Church, but it changed its message significantly just when we entered our teens. She tells people that I prayed her back into the Kingdom, and then she led me here! Of course, it was really the Lord, and we both know that. I was Baptized into the Orthodox Church just after Theophany in 2012. I attend St. Nektarios Orthodox Church, OCA, here in Waxahachie, where I sing alto in the choir.

I attended the University of Texas at El Paso (Go Miners!). I did graduate work there and, also, at West Texas A&M. I have nearly always taught since then. I have taught Kindergarten for 16 years, Spanish for about ten years, and other elementary grades as well. The schools where I have taught have been very good ones; some secular and some religious.

I hope to be able to get to know you better soon. I have been lesson planning for the past two weeks, and I am ready to go! Come join me!
