Pottery is an elective class at Riddle Jr./Sr. High School. Carol Ratliff is a guest teacher. She taught students in-person until we went to comprehensive distance learning. She is currently teaching virtually with in-class video sessions with several Riddle teachers facilitating her lessons. Carol has learned how to make and post videos to supplement her teaching. The pottery created here at school is then "shuttled" to her local studio for completion. Our students are fortunate to have this hands-on class creating pottery pieces to be enjoyed!
