Welcome to Kindergarten!
About Miss Ford
My name is Stefanie Ford. I am the Kindergarten teacher. The 2016-17 school year was my first year at Ar-We-Va. I previously taught at Audubon where I currently live. I'm originally from Brooklyn, Iowa. I attended college in Sioux City at Morningside College where I got my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. I have a K-12
Reading endorsement and a 5-12 Instructional Strategist 1 (SPED) endorsement. I am currently taking online courses to earn my Masters of Arts in Teaching from Morningside. In my spare time (ha!) I like to watch movies, go to the Civic Center in Des Moines, judge High School Speech contests, take pictures, and bake. I work at Carroll 5 Theatres in Carroll part-time a few nights a week. I don't have any kids (aside from the kids in my class) but I do have two "fur babies" - Leo and Gus. I can't wait to help the students grow in their learning! 🙂
