Hi! I’m Ms. Ford and I will be your 8th grade ELA teacher for the 2021-2022 year! I officially transferred to Overhills Middle from teaching for 7 years at Highland Middle and this is my eleventh year teaching. I am a young widow and now a solo mom. I have a sweet, hyperactive son named TJ (he's 3), and he is the absolute love of my life!


My hobbies include fishing, reading, and trying to cherish the memories that life gives you. 


I am a Young Adult leader at my church (Chapel Hill AME Zion). I am also the new Chairperson of Inspire and Motivate Our Future, Inc., Assistant Cheerleading Coach for OMS, and a Brainfuse Tutor, in which I aid college students in assisting them with writing essays and tutoring.


I am excited about this school year and looking forward to new experiences with you! 


Please remember that it's easy to smile: DO IT!
