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

My name is April Ford. This will begin my seventh year of teaching. My first year, I taught kindergarten at Highland. The last five 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 2018-2019 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 sixth anniversary. He works as a nurse practitioner in the Gadsden area. We have a sweet baby boy, Aiden. He will turn two in November.
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!
