Mrs. Ratchford's First Grade

I am a 22 year educator who loves her job! Teaching children and helping them to discover the joy of learning is my calling in life. My mission is to make learning fun and engaging, and to reach every learner. I have had a life-long love of books and find great joy in sharing this passion with my students. I always warn parents that once your child steps foot in my classroom, be prepared to visit the library often! I also make it a goal to help parents continue the important job of being their child's very first teacher. First Grade is forever, and your child will always have a special place in my heart!
