Hello I am Charles B. Ramskov and I have been teaching part-time and full-time since 1977.  I am a De Anza alumni and earned my A.A. degree.  I got the best start on my career available anywhere, right here at De Anza College. I started out as a Philosophy major and then changed as I became interested in experimental psychology in the very same lab. we have today (with upgrades of course).

I was born in Orlean, France and immigrated to the U.S. with my parents in the fifties.  My father was in the Army and we traveled the world for over twenty years.  I have lived in many parts of the U.S. as well as Japan, Korea, France, Germany and Spain.

I wanted to be a rock star out of High School but settled on going to De Anza.  That Rock Star business is harder than it looks.  I took Psychology 1 in Forum 1 at 9:30  in 1973 with Professor Poduska (now at Brigham Young).  I was inspired by that experience and the teaching of the Department Chair at that time Frank Savage.  He and others built a great program and we will continue it and we will inspire you.

De Anza College is very special to me and I want it to be a special experience for you.  I will do all I can to make that happen.  Remember De Anza is the very best Community College in this solar system.
