Ms. Cramer is a lover of all things sports! If you walk in #TeamCramer, you will notice this immediately! She grew up playing basketball and her spare time was spent at the ballpark watching her two big brothers play the sports they love! She even got to cheer them on into college as they played college athletics (Go Samford Bulldogs and Roll Tide). Outside of school, Ms. Cramer enjoys traveling, shopping, decorating, learning, eating new places with friends, working out at Burn Boot Camp, and spending time with her family. She frequently visits her two brothers and their families in Atlanta, Georgia and Portland, Oregon.
