I am a first grade teacher at Summerville Elementary School. This is my 22nd year at SES, and my 35th year teaching. I earned my Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Elementary from Georgia Southern Universtiy in 1985, and my Masters in Elementary Administration from Charleston Southern University in 1999. I was a National Board Certified Teacher from 2002-2012, and I had the honor to be SES's Teacher of the Year in 2014-2015. I have taught Kindergarten, First, and Second grade, and had the option to "loop" with several classes here at SES. Here at SES, I also had the wonderful experience, and opportunity of teaching the ALL Girls first and second grade classes for 8 years. I have been happily married to Leon Ratliff for 27 years, and have lived in Summerville for 26 years. I have two daughters, Erica and Sarah, a son-in-law, Nate, and 2 grandchildren, Hunter, age 7, Connor, age 4, and Seth, 4 months old. I am looking forward to working with all of my students, and families! I beleive communication is the key component for a successful school year! Please feel free to contact me anytime.
