I can't do these ratings for Mr Ramsey, they don't apply and he never really fit into any conventional rating system. He had the biggest influence on my life as a leader and teacher. He changed my way of thinking and for one year turned things on their head. Mr. Ramsey is what teachers should all aspire to be. I wish I knew where he was, I would tell him myself. Julie Arthurs, one person forever so grateful for my grade 6 year with John Ramsey... About 35 years ago.
A marvelous gift I passed on to my grandson are two boxes of mineral specimens that John gave me over twenty- five years ago. John was a fascinating man with a wide range of interests. The fact that he teaches at a very high level and challenges his students to be their best is no surprise. I think he is one of Canada's national treasures. Bill Wachter , Ph.D.
John Ramsey was not easy and was not helpful - he was challenging and introduced us 6th-graders to a whole new way of thinking. He shook up our social order and brought out qualities in ALL of us we never knew we had. I'll never forget Mr. Ramsey. He was the best teacher I ever had, grade school and high school combined.
Nice man---Even better teacher. We loved going to 'Crankshaft's' class. He was always quick to point out that his classes had nothing to do with a crankshaft. I appreciated his hands on approach to teaching us how to use tools SAFELY and properly in the shop.
