Name: April Ford
Grade- 3rd Grade Self-Contained

My name is April Ford. This will begin my eighth year of teaching. My first year, I taught kindergarten at Highland. The last six years I have had the privilege of teaching both third and fourth grade right here at John Jones. I will be part of the third grade team again for the 2019-2020 school year. I graduated from Jacksonville State University in the Fall of 2010 with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education and with my Master's in ESL from UAB in December 2015.
My husband, Justin, and I just celebrated our seventh anniversary. He works as a nurse practitioner in the Gadsden area. We have a little boy, Aiden. He turned three in November. We welcomed our sweet baby girl, Caroline, in July. 
I could not be more excited to teach your child. If you have any questions, please e-mail me at, or write a note in your child's c-book. We are going to have a fabulous year!
