My name is Jessica Ford. I live in Frederick County, VA with my husband, two children, and our dog, Sadie. I have always known I wanted to be a teacher. After graduating from James Wood High School, I earned a bachelor's degree in elementary education from Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, WV. After teaching for eight years, I earned my master's degree as a Reading Specialist from Shenandoah University. I have been a reading specialist for 13 years. I love teaching children about reading and how a love of reading can change one's life.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. We love trips to the beach and attending sporting events, or just spending time at home. My children are active in various sports and attending their games is my favorite past time as well.
