TEK 3rd Grade Miracle Worker
3rd Grade teacher, Jeannie Ramsey, was awarded the Miracle Worker Award from Greenville County Schools for her quick thinking that saved a life during lunch one afternoon. A 3rd grader in another classroom was eating a hamburger at lunch and began choking. Ms. Ramsey used her training as a First Responder to administer the Heimlich Manuever to the student. Due to her quick thinking and actions, this student was saved! We are lucky to have Ms. Ramsey here at TEK!!
