Ms. Wendy Ford

Hello! My name is Wendy Ford. I will be your child's 4th grade teacher this year.  I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child.  I have been teaching for 24 years and I know this will be the best one yet!  Due to COVID-19 we will have some challenges, but we will get through all of them together.  We will be integrating technology into our daily lessons in Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies.  We will also focus on social emotional learning so that we can be our best selves! This year 4th grade will be using an online learning system called Canvas. I will be sending out student invitations to their school email soon. Canvas is a very organized system that should help students clearly know what they are expected to do each day.  It will definitely be an adventure!

I have 3 children; Alexis is a high school senior, Ava is in 8th grade, and Colton is in 6th grade. My job and my family keep my very busy, but in my free time I enjoy going to the beach, hunting, fishing, and I especially love working with photography and graphic design in Photoshop.  Another hobby of mine is paper crafting.  I handmade almost all of the decor and learning tools I have in my classroom.
