Greetings 6th Grade Students and Parents:
Welcome to the new world of middle school! I am so happy to have you in my class. My name is Kimberly Ratliff and I will be teaching 6th grade social studies here at Eagles Landing Middle. I have been teaching for 20 years (a long time, right?) with 12 years here at Eagles Landing. I have 2 adult children who have attended the Eagles Landing Cluster-Flippen, Eagles Landing Middle, and Eagles Landing High.
Although we will be learning remotely, I want to assure you that we will work hard, but we will also play hard. I mean we will have fun, interesting activities that will help throughout this learning process.
I have very high expectations for my class. I hold students accountable for their behaviors and assignments; I really want them to advocate for themselves. Each student will be responsible for coming to class on time and prepared for class. It is very important that I inspire the sense of responsibility in each student for their education. It is my goal to prepare my students to be lifelong learners equipped to handle the challenges of the twenty-first century.
The first week will consist of tutorials on Google-Classroom, Documents, Slides, and Sites. In addition, I will go over the various apps we will use this year. I will send the same information to parents so that you are up to date as well. Please look over the 3 student laptops below to obtain important information about the class. I look forward to teaching your child this year and together we will make this a memorable year!
