Ms. Kenya Ratliff, MA. / K - 2nd Grade

My name is Kenya Ratliff, and I am so excited to be a part of the Sadler community! I was born in Gastonia, NC, but was raised in Indian Trail, NC. As far back as I can remember, I have always loved helping others and being there for them. This is what inspired me to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Sociology, Psychology and Spanish and, ultimately, my master’s degree in School Counseling from Gardner-Webb University. It is so nice to meet you!
