Ms. Katie Ratliff
Welcome to my 1st grade class! I am Katie Ratliff and I have been teaching since 2011, 7 years of which have been at Coronado K-8 and 2 years at Holaway. Previously, I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade. In my free time, I volunteer for my sorority as an advisor, spend time with my dog, and dream about being at the beach or riding rides in Disneyland.
DEFINING MOMENT IN EDUCATION
Caycie, a young woman whom I've known since she was born, is the reason why I became a teacher. Watching her eyes light up when I taught her something new gave me the greatest sense of fulfillment, even if it was something as simple as how to shuffle cards. Caycie helped me realize that I wanted to spend my life teaching and inspiring young children, just as they have taught and inspired me.
CORE EDUCATIONAL BELIEF
I believe in helping all students learn and grow by providing developmentally appropriate challenges.
