Hi! I’m Ms. Ford and I will be your 8th grade ELA teacher for the 2020-2021 year! This is my sixth year at Highland Middle and my tenth year teaching. I am a widow of going on 10 months and now a solo mom. I have a sweet, but hyperactive, son named TJ (he is 2 years old as of 9/14) 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) as well as one on our District Level (Dunn-Lillington). I also am 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! I know this year will be unusual but we will get through it.


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