Mrs. Ford

My name is Mrs. Ford. I am one of 7 First GradeTeachers here at MOES. I have been teaching  for 9 years and I have LOVED every minute of it.

I am happily married with two wonderful children. I have a daughter named Megan who just graduated college and a 17 year old boy named Chandler who is a Junior in High School.

My favorite color is yellow and I love collecting Bears. I also love spending my time creating new and fun things for us to do each week. We will be using a new way of teaching this year called flexible (alternative) seating. This is where they are allowed to sit where they like on what ever they like as long as they are on task. For example: Jill can sit on the carpet while Jill wants to sit on the fitness ball. No assigned seating will occur, they will be allowed to sit next to whomever they wish again as long as they remain on task.  I was able start this amazing way of running the classroom thanks to  my Donors Choose project that was fully funded in 2016. 

If you ever need to contact me my email address is melissa.ford@marion.k12.fl.us.
