#Virtual 2023 Speaker
Whitney Ramirez is a second grade teacher in San Diego, CA. Currently in her tenth year of teaching, Whitney has taught five different grade levels, experienced a variety of school cultures, and worked with many unique teaching personalities. She loves public speaking, and even had a moment where she made it to the third audition round at American Idol (way back in 2010!) She also has two Master’s degrees, and was a D1 collegiate athlete, playing lacrosse at St. Mary’s College of CA. There are things that she learned on the field that have made her a better leader and teacher. When she’s not in my classroom, you’ll most likely find her snuggling with her mini goldendoodle Gus, reading at the beach, or grabbing a beer at a brewery (usually accompanied with a slice of pizza). Whitney loves a good happy hour, playing board games with her husband, and bingeing some Netflix or Bravo.
