Get to know Mrs. Ralls!
Mrs. Ralls was born in North Vancouver, Canada.
She has taught Preschool for 11 years.
Her teaching philosophy is that if a child feels safe and loved they can learn almost anything!
She has a wonderful husband, two teenagers, and a cat named James P. Sullivan.
Her favorite teacher was her 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Doble because of her wonderfully interactive lessons and because she was always supportive and kind.
Her favorite part of being a teacher is seeing a student’s face light up when they discover something.
Each year several students figure out how to decode letters into words and she is always amazed to watch the first time this happens.
The number one thing she hopes each student takes from her class is that they are loved, and that they are capable of doing hard things.
Mrs. Ralls says, “I love Arches Academy and the dedication to educational excellence! I believe that when parents and teachers work together, every child can succeed!”
