Melissa Ramos receives award
Former Floresville Independent School District Director of Technology Melissa Ramos has been honored with the Making IT Happen award, recognizing her contributions to integrating technology in the Floresville schools.
FLORESVILLE -- Melissa Ramos, who recently retired as director of technology for the Floresville Independent School District (ISD), has been honored with the coveted Making IT Happen jacket for her contributions to the successful integration of technology in education in K-12 schools. The Making IT Happen award is provided by the International Society for Technology in Education, of which the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) is an affiliate.
While attending the TCEA Convention in Austin, Ramos was honored by TCEA for her dedication to education and successful integration of technology in the classroom. The Making IT Happen program has made a commitment to work with state and national organizations to identify individuals who are truly Making IT Happen within their respective state or region and to recognize them publicly.
During the award ceremony, Ramos was described as an exceptional educator with more than 30 years of service as a teacher, trainer, grant-writer, and mentor, and as the director of technology in Floresville ISD.
Joel Adkins, current president-elect of the Texas Computer Education Association’s TEC-SIG group, described Ramos’s invaluable contributions to educational technology through her service as a TEC-SIG secretary and treasurer as the key promotion and communication of SIG needs to the members and partner sponsors.
Her colleagues praised Ramos for her creative ways to use technology to provide on-site support for teachers and students, and her passion and joy in sharing technology as the modern force behind education pedagogy, as well as her ability to manage a small but effective technology department.
Ramos joins a prestigious group of Making IT Happen honorees, including classroom teachers, school principals, district superintendents, legislators, governors, and even former Secretary of Education Richard Riley.
