Name: April Ford

My name is April Ford. This will begin my ninth year of teaching. My first year, I taught kindergarten at Highland. The last seven years I have had the privilege of teaching both third and fourth grade right here at John Jones. I am SO excited to be part of kindergarten team for the 2020-2021 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 eighth anniversary. He works as a nurse practitioner in the Gadsden area. We have a little boy, Aiden. He will turn four in November. The newest addition to our family, Caroline, turned one 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!
