I sincerely appreciate the school board's confidence in me, and I am dedicated to working closely with our staff and Board to identify priorities for addressing the needs of each of our students as well as meeting the expectations of the community for our schools."

Mrs. Ratliff’s commitment to this role is built on a life-long presence in the city and its school system.  As a life-long resident of Colonial Heights, she attended Flora M. Hill School, Tussing Elementary School, Colonial Heights Junior High School, and Colonial Heights High School. Mrs. Ratliff graduated from Longwood College with an undergraduate degree in Special Education and earned Master's Degrees from Virginia State University in Guidance and Counseling and School Administration and Leadership. She has served as an educator in Colonial Heights Public Schools for 34 years. Having fulfilled the roles of teacher, coach, school counselor, administrator for special education, Director of Curriculum and Assessment, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction, and Interim Executive Director of Appomattox Regional Governor’s School, Mrs. Ratliff has dedicated her career to serving the students and families of Colonial Heights Public Schools.
