    About Me

    As you know, my name is Angela Ramsey.  I am a Stony Point native and a 1998 graduate of West Iredell High School.  I was a NC Teaching Fellow at Western Carolina University.  I greatly enjoyed my time in Cullowhee, NC, but was ready to come home upon graduation to teach in my home county.  I consider myself extremely blessed to have been able to secure a position at West Iredell High.  I have been teaching here since 2002.  My husband Adam and I have been married for seven years and have two sons: Micah, 2, and Willie, born July 2013.
