Hi! I'm Shelly Ford and I teach Alternative Core Reading/Language Arts. I have a Literacy Endorsement in addition to my Master Degree in Special Education. I've also trained with O.R.E.O. (outdoor recreation education organization) put on by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. I have been teaching Middle School for 18 years, 12 years as a Special Education Teacher and I'm on my 2nd year teaching 8th grade Reading and my 6th year teaching Alternative Core Reading. Before that, I worked as a Special Education preschool teacher and was a Case Manager for the Wyoming Department of Disabilities.
My children are all grown up! My son and son-in-law are teachers in Cheyenne and my daughter is a graduate of the University of Wyoming. I am extremely proud of all of them! My family also includes 2 rescue dogs and 2 kitties. We all enjoy the outdoors. The kids and I love hiking, skiing, snow shoeing, kayaking, backpacking, and camping. The animals enjoy the outdoors as a chance to chase anything that moves and keep the camps clear of riff raff!
I'm excited to teach ELA again! I look forward to working with you! Let's make this a great year!
