During the month of March, we are taking time to highlight several of our esteemed colleagues and reflect on all they do to ensure that De La Salle is a safe, vibrant, and wonderful institution of learning. The Women of D are a vital part of our community. We are grateful for your contributions.
Meet Norma Ramos
She is a math teacher who began her career at De La Salle at Lourdes Hall Campus in 2005. “I’m in room 320 and you can usually find me in my room teaching Geometry or Pre-Calculus or providing help to students who seek more math practice.
Background and Journey to De La Salle
“Towards the end of my last semester in college, I got a call from Mr. Khazen (former Applied Science Division Dean here at De) after he received my resume through the annual resume book set-up and sent out by my college. I met him and toured the Lourdes Hall Campus for a potential math teaching position. I went to an all-girls catholic high school myself and wanted to continue to teach in a Catholic setting.”
What inspires you about De La Salle?
“I believe De La Salle provides an environment where students can feel safe and comfortable as they navigate academic challenges as well as challenges faced during adolescence and living in an ever-changing world.”
What Woman has been an inspiration to you?
“So many to choose!! Hands down, I admire my mother above all women. She loves her family and will do anything for them. She believes in the power of God and prayers. She has great taste in fashion, gift-giving, food, decorating and good ol’ fashion advice. She loves to read, go on walks, solve puzzles and is able to do loads of math calculations in her head. She is stubborn when she knows right is right and wrong is wrong. She has a critical eye that pays attention to the details. She loves a good party and will jump at the chance of hosting whenever she can. She is 74 years young and simply unstoppable!”
