Ms. Darla Ratliff

Darla Ratliff is new this year to Champion High school.  Her journey to Champion is one of many stops and starts. She has a bachelor's in ENG education from Northern Arizona University and a masters in Adult Education from The University of Phoenix, a degree she is especially proud of since she earned it all online with classmates in a completely different timezone while living in Italy during a military assignment.   She has been teaching a little over 9 years, with Champion becoming her 6th High School.  Other high schools include two in Arizona, one in Alaska, and one in Florida. Most recently she taught 4 years in NEISD in San Antonio.  Through her association with the Air Force, she had the opportunity to teach students in several parts of the country with many travel and life experiences around the world along the way.  She had a unique opportunity to live in Italy for over six years with opportunities to explore most of the European continent.  She is now excited to teach in the community she has made her permanent home with her four children.  Two of those are students at Champion and the youngest will begin 7th grade at Voss.

She is a lifelong learner who has a private pilot's license, a health and life insurance agents' license. She participates in her church organization, volunteers in the community, and enjoys trying just about anything once.

When she's not teaching, she enjoys spending time in the pool, reading a good book, binge watching tv shows, hosting gatherings in her home, and trying new things.  She enjoys hiking or biking the trails around town, snow skiing when she can get to a mountain, and  spends a good deal of time as a parent volunteer with the band.
