Ms. Kourtney Ratcliff

Hello! My name is Kourtney M. Ratcliff and this is my 6th year in education. I am excited to be joining the Griffin Elementary Bulldogs as the Special Education Resource and Inclusion teacher for the 2018-2019 school year! I am a Fall 2013 graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University where I received my BS in Kinesiology and an April 2018 graduate of Grand Canyon University where I earned my Masters in Educational Leadership. I am in the process of receiving my Doctorate in K-12 Organizational Leadership at Grand Canyon University. Prior to teaching in Tyler ISD, I taught Special Education, English Language Arts, Reading, and Math in Center ISD and Nacogdoches ISD.


My goal is to help my students fall in love with the idea of learning and understand how knowledge can be applied to our everyday lives. I want my students to know their worth and be proud of their academic success.
