I am so honored to be the new interim-principal of Mary Ford Elementary.  It has been a pleasure to meet and get to know the students, parents and families that make up this wonderful community. I am especially pleased to be part of a faculty and staff committed to providing the best possible education for every child in a safe, nurturing environment.  I look forward to building on this tradition of academic excellence and am excited to continue to move Mary Ford Elementary to even higher levels of learning

The faculty and staff at Mary Ford are committed to teaching all students so they can meet and exceed the South Carolina College and Career Readiness State Standards for every child.   It is our intention for all of our students to leave Mary Ford prepared for higher education, equipped with critical thinking skills and empowered with a love of learning.

I am excited to partner with Mary Ford's School Improvement Council and the strong group of parents, guardians, grandparents and extended families who make up our community.  We welcome volunteers in our classrooms, activities and programs. Our teachers invite ongoing communication with families, and my door is always open.  I appreciate your input, and I look forward to working with you and your child in these very important first years of school.
