I would like to nominate Maria Ramos from MVCC. I am 44 years old and just started college again after 26 years. It’s really hard. I found I was having a hard time remembering all the stuff we had previously studied in chapters and started getting a bad grade in Psychology. Mrs Ramos took the time to talk to me about my tests and told me she would break up the tests into chapter tests if I needed too. It was a relief and really made this class a lot less stressful. It meant a lot too me. Nominated by Sara
