I was very fortunate to have Mrs.Ratchford as my 7th grade teacher. She was honestly rrly funny and nice, u need to get on her good side and do all ur hw. Try to stay quiet and she will like u, she also likes if u go and talk to her and if u go to extra help to work on essays and hw with her. I'm not very good at ss but Mrs.Ratchford was rrly good, I'm still not good at it or the DBQs (I suggest not doing them the night b4 there due) if u have Mrs.Ratchford you are very lucky

she is the best teacher ever. she can be a little boring but always gets to the point and I learned a lot with her as my teacher. she does assign homework daily and you NEED to study for her tests, but you do that in all subjects. She is so nice and I definitely recommend. Once you get to now her you will love her and her jokes. I'm going to miss her so much in when im in high school!

Yeah, she can be boring, but what Social Studies teacher isn't? She can be a hard grader, but she liked me and she could be nice sometimes. She explained stuff when you didn't understand. I thought she was alright. Not the most fun, but at some points she was funny.

She is a good teacher, but can get boring a lot. She teaches well, gets to the point, but can also give a lot of homework... so be prepared. She lets you make up work by the end of the quarter though.
