Mrs. Ashley Ford

Hello! My name is Ashley Ford. I am so excited to be teaching first grade this year. I came to Harvest Elementary in 2019 after teaching in both public and private schools in various grade levels. First grade has always been my true love as I enjoy seeing the amount of growth and learning that occurs during this age, and nothing makes me happier as a teacher than teaching a child to read! When not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband Barry and I have two grown children, our son Ryan and daughter Anna. We have two godchildren, Angel and Fabiana, who live in Honduras that I visit as often as possible. We also have two "granddogs" named Mabel and Tod that complete our family. I am looking forward to a great school year with my "class family!"
