Hi my name is Carrie Ford. I am excited to join the White Pine Charter School staff.  I have taught school for twenty years and love working with children.  I am married with 5 children and 10 grandchildren.  Some of the  activities I like doing with my grandchildren are hunting for Monarch caterpillars so that we can watch them change into a butterfly.  Catching tadpoles, and painting rocks.  I love the outdoors and traveling.  We have ducks, chickens, horses, dogs and a cat.  I love to read books and really enjoy reading to my students.  I enjoy doing creative things and hands-on projects.

Here are my answers to some burning questions I'm sure you are all anxious to know:

If I were to describe myself as a teacher in ONE word it would be CARING.

A food I could eat every day is sweet Bing Cherries!  I grew up eating them straight from our tree as a kid.

If I could only take one book on vacation, it would be one I haven't read yet.  Or one of my classic favorites such as To Kill a Mocking Bird.

If I could be any animal for a day, it would probably be a big beautiful butterfly.  The sight of a butterfly makes me happy.  Plus, I could fly around and see the world below me.

I chose to join the White Pine staff because their philosophy of a more rounded education is in line with what I think our students need.  I love the Core Kowledge concept and the family like atmosphere that I feel here.  I am looking forward to meeting my students and getting to know them.  I am anticipating a fantastic year!
